I am a Provost's Early Career Postdoctoral Fellow in the Jackson School of Geosciences. My research focuses on using sedimentary rocks to reconstruct ancient subduction zones and continental collisions. I utilize a combination of field work, sedimentology, stratigraphy, geo-/thermo-/petrochronology, and provenance proxies. I use the evolution of ancient sedimentary basins to explore the links between geodynamics, tectonics, topography, magmatism, and biogeography.
Areas of Expertise
Sedimentary basin analysis, detrital geo-/thermo-/petrochronology, sedimentology/stratigraphy, orogenic evolution, continental collisions, paleogeography and biogeography
