M.S., Geological Sciences, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, current
Environmental Field Scientist, Professional and Technical Support Services, Baton Rouge, LA, Oct. 2010-May, 2011
B.A., Geology, Pomona College, 2010
Thesis: "Geochemical Investigation of the Red Cinder Peak Area of Makushin
Volcano, Unalaska, AK"; advisors Dr. Jade Star Lackey and Dr. Rick Hazlett

I am a M.S. student working with Dr. Allen Glazner on the formation of crystal-poor, high-SiO2 rhyolites. Specifically, I am studying how obsidian comes to be so crystal poor by examining heat flow dynamics in obsidian production.

In addition to my own research, I am a teaching assistant (101L), lecture assistant (101), research assistant to Dr. Allen Glazner, and the graduate research consultant (GRC) for GEOL72H.

I love volcanoes.
