I am an assistant professor in geology at Emory & Henry College in southwestern Virginia. Nestled in the hills of Appalachia I have a great opportunity to teach about the natural world from a geological perspective.
I received my PhD from Oregon State University where I created a deglacial chronology of Irish cirque glaciers. Originally I am from the Washington, D.C. area and received my Bachelor's of Science from George Mason University in Earth Science. My research interests include: glacial geomorphology and chronology, cosmogenic surface exposure dating, paleoclimatology, sedimentary geology and stratigraphy, and geostatistical analysis. I have had the opportunity to work in locations such as Ireland, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Cascades of Oregon, and the U.S. and Canadian Rockies.
I have an interest in teaching that has been supported through the experience of teaching classes in Geology, Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, Weather and Climate, and instructing a wide range of geology classes including: Physical and Historical Geology, Paleoclimatology, Mineralogy, Global Climate Change and Processes, Glacial Geology, and Structural Geology.
