Home: Welcome

Hi :) I am a PhD candidate at the University of Arizona broadly interested in the long-term behavior of the outermost shell of planet Earth.  My dissertation focuses on the evolution of Cordilleran fold-thrust belts and addresses Andean thrust belt kinematics between 32-35°S as part of the TANGO project.  I have an additional chapter dedicated to the regional development of the Helena salient in west-central Montana.  My M.S. work was also in western Montana, focusing on the development of the Anaconda metamorphic core complex.


I am a field-based structural geologist and thermochronologist who integrates geologic mapping, field observation, low-T thermochron, geochronology, and various modeling techniques.  Our team considers datasets in a regional context, enabling the testing and/or creation of geodynamic models. I am actively involved in field-based projects in the Andes, western interior USA, and south-central Tibet.

I'm passionate about science communication, writing essays on topics in science and philosophy on my Instagram and creating YouTube videos that focus on sharing modern geoscience research and tips for success at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
