My general research interests are in structural geology, tectonics, and igneous and metamorphic petrology, and I particularly enjoy applying each of these disciplines to geological mapping!

At the WSGS, I am working on a map of surface and bedrock geology of the Phantom Lake Quadrangle in the Medicine Bow Mountains of southeastern Wyoming.

For my M.S. thesis, I am researching the tectonic processes which drive hydrothermal circulation and seafloor spreading at ultra-slow mid-ocean ridges.
