My geologic interests are broad, but primarily lie in the fields of igneous petrology, volcanology, and tectonics.  These interests are focused on understanding: [1] how magmas form and are modified; [2] relationships between volcanism and tectonism; [3] temporal, spatial, and mass relationships between magmatism and precious metal mineralization; [4] physical volcanology of silicic magmatic products and their eruptive systems; [5] volcanic stratigraphy, including tephrostratigraphy.

My research and field-based teaching includes field experience centered on the volcanic terranes of the western Snake River Plain, Oregon Plateau, and northern Great Basin; in mixed volcanic-sedimentary deposits of the central Snake River Plain; in Precambrian through Quaternary terranes of the greater Wind River basin-Yellowstone region, WY, in the Wrangell Mountains, Alaska, and in Oklahoma and Kansas.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions and for information about current/future projects, see the  Research page.
