My research applies structural analysis to multiply deformed regions to investigate mechanisms of continental deformation and tectonic processes. In addition to systematic field mapping, I employ microstructural analysis using Electron Backscatter Diffraction, as well as various geo-thermochronologic techniques. My primary advisor is Dr. Andrew V. Zuza. I am currently funded through the NSF EarthScope AGeS2 program to examine the Mesozoic-Cenozoic thermal evolution of the ancient Nevadaplano in northeastern Nevada using Ar thermochronology with Dr. Matt Heizler at New Mexico Tech.
