Natalie’s research has focused on the physical processes along rivers with emphasis on in-stream wood. She enjoys multi-scale integrative research. She is currently working on the CHaMP project, integrating ecological and physical data throughout the headwaters of the Columbia Basin to aid in the recovery and management of salmon populations in the Pacific Northwest.

Natalie Kramer is a fluvial geomorphologist and lifelong river runner. She joined the ET-AL team in January 2017 as a post-doctoral scholar after completing her PhD at Colorado State University with Ellen Wohl in 2016. Natalie is a SoGES Global Sustainability Leadership Fellow (2013) who values sharing her research with the general public. She particularly enjoys telling compelling big picture stories about how riverine landscapes evolve and change through time. She has worked on a variety of projects resulting in numerous academic publications in respected journals. Prior to working on data analysis and synthesis for CHaMP, most of her work was focused on the transport of instream wood through drainage networks and the legacy impacts of wood deposits on shorelines. Kayaking has given her a broad intuitive understanding of rivers that has been hugely influential to her success as a physical scientist. Fun fact: since infancy, Natalie has never gone a full year without floating down a river somewhere.
