I am a geophysicist who applies physics and math to solve geologic problems.

My broad research interests are in the dynamics of Earth's tectonic plates. Recently, I have been working on how magma-rock interaction can alter continental lithosphere.

Prospective students: I am always looking for motivated graduate and undergraduate students who are interested in using physics, math, and numerical modeling to solve geologic problems. Please send me an email.

Announcements - Fall 2022: Congratulations to PhD student Katherine Cosburn for succesfully defending her thesis in May and to undergraduate honors student Will Crockett on completing his honors thesis!

Spring 2022: Congratulations to undergraduate honors student Will Crockett on being accepted to the Santa Fe Institute summer program on complexity research! and also for winning a 2022 Water GC Communication Scholarship for his work on modeling soil moisture
