Research Interests

 

I'm interested in the processes that deformed earth's crust during orogenic uplift in western North America. Rocks in southern Arizona have enjoyed multiple episodes of compression, extension, and magmatism, resulting in a complex puzzle that has left many components scattered, obscured, and missing entirely. To better understand the story, we look to the mountains for the remaining pieces of the puzzle. Through techniques like geologic mapping, stratigraphic analysis, geochronology, thermochronology, and more, we can learn more about the elusive tectonic history in the region.
