My current research project looks at mantle hydration and metastomatism underneath the Colorado Plateau. My research will look into the timing and circumstances of the alteration as well as the rheologic implications on the stable Colorado Plateau. Prior research has been in the petrology and geochemistry of the Allsaw Anorthosite in the Ontario Grenville province, oxygen fugacity of the upper zone of the Bushveld Complex and the serpentinites of the Philadelphia area.
