Research Interests

My research interests are in structural geology and focus on understanding the origin, evolution, and dynamics of seismicity preserved in basement faults. This is primarily accomplished through integrated field and microstructural studies. Related interests include coupled basement-cover deformation in multiply reactivated fault zones. I am also interested in aspects of science education, including the impact of undergraduate research and other high-impact activities on learning. Current field research focuses on sites in the Colorado Rockies, western Greenland, and southern Appalachians.
