I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Wisconsin - Madison studying glacier and climate fluctuations from the Pleistocene to the late Holocene. I use in-situ cosmogenic nuclide measurements to determine the age of glacial deposits and have an interest in applying them to numerous geologic problems.
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 lecturing and instructing labs for a wide range of geology classes including: Physical and Historical Geology, Mineralogy, Global Climate Change and Processes, Glacial Geology, Sedimentary Geology and Stratigraphy, and Structural Geology.
