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.
