Fields of interest: 
Surface Exposure Dating, Glacial Geology, Paleoclimatology, Tectonic Geomorphology and Paleoseismology

I am trained as a geochemist and glacial geologist with specialization in applying cosmogenic nuclide techniques to quantify earth surface processes and the timing of climate change. As a result, I believe in an approach to earth science that combines fieldwork and the establishment of rates and dates achieved through cutting edge geochemical methods. My current interests and previous research has focused on the refinement of cosmogenic nuclide systematics for surface exposure dating and subsequent application of new and established methods to questions in glacial geology, geomorphology, climate change, and landscape evolution, especially using multiple nuclides simultaneously. My additional interests include paleoseismology, sedimentation rates and sedimentary provenance, and paleoceanography, especially reconciling terrestrial and marine climate records.
