My research interests are in planetary geology, sedimentology, early Earth processes and geoscience education. My current research focuses on studies of Precambrian meteor impacts and the implications for early Earth tectonics and environments. In addition, I collaborate with cognitive scientists on understanding spatial reasoning in the geosciences and drone practice and automation in the geosciences.
I teach upper level/graduate classes in Sedimentary Petrology and Planetary Geology, and teach undergraduate general education classes, “Sustainable Environments” and “Hidden Figures to Gamergate: Race and Gender in Science and Technology” online.
