I have a background in Geology and Education in a variety of settings. My research has focused on large-scale tectonic movements, which means I've been able to combine tectonics, structural geology, sedimentology, and paleomagnetism to answer these questions. I have a passion for teaching, and have taught high-school Earth Science and Marine Science formally, and have informally taught everywhere else (in coffee shops, while hiking, while leading canoe trips, in the teachers lounge, etc)! I've also worked as a contracting geologist for the National Museum of Natural History, at the Smithsonian Institution, where I helped manage their gigantic meteorite collection and was also able help with educational displays for the exhibit hall. And, I had a stint with a geotechnical engineering firm where I helped map landslides, trench faults, and climb under buildings and through sewer lines.
