I am a geologist with research interests in petrology and meteoritics. My recent projects also incorporate remote sensing techniques, specifically visible/near-infrared and nuclear spectroscopy. In addition I have eight years of teaching experience in geology, in courses that range from introductory to capstone/field-based.
