I study Crustal Dynamics.  I enjoy incorporating structural geology with metamorphic petrology, geochemistry, thermobarometry, and geochronology to understand the histories of multiply metamorphosed terranes. 

I study geochemical and mechanical processes due to mineral reactions during metamorphism of “stable” terrane interiors as well as fault reactivation along terrane boundaries.  I have two current areas of study, each of which emphasizes a slightly different area of my broad interests.
