My science lives at the crossroads of geochemistry, petrology, and structural geology. I use these different branches of geology to investigate fluid movement in the deep earth, thermal histories, chemical signatures of rock deformation, and rates of geologic processes. My main research tools are field mapping, petrography, and forms of in situ microanalysis, including electron microprobe, electron-backscatter diffraction, and secondary ion mass spectrometry.  For details about specific research applications, please visit my research page.
