RESEARCH:

My research training is in igneous petrology. I have done work investigating the geochemistry of lavas and tephras erupted in the rift zones of Iceland and the continental arc of the Andes for the purpose of describing crustal and volcanological processes.

Through my work teaching at field camps, I have also developed research efforts into the area of field-based geoscience education.

I have current ongoing projects involving:

  • Eruptive history of Icelandic volcanic centers
  • Eruptive history of Cotopaxi Volcano, Ecuador
  • Design and implementation of field camps

 

Current and former students:

  • Hope Turner - M.S. expected
  • Megan Saalfeld - M.S. 2017
  • Anthony Martino - B.S. 2016
  • Jenna Reindel - B.S. 2015

 

TEACHING:

During the academic year I do a great deal of teaching at the introductory level.  

Currently I teach: Introduction to Geology, Climate Change, and Earth Environments.

I have taught: Mineralogy, Earth Materials, Historical Geology, Geologic Hazards, Field Geology, Geology of Iceland, Field Experience in Geology.

Field Teaching:

Director, Charles Barney Field Camp Program (LSU)

Geology in Iceland (LSU)
