Visiting Assistant Professor
Mineralogy and Environmental Science

Using environmental magnetic methods to investigate soil development and response to anthropogenic changes (specifically, the response of soil mineralogy when agricultural lands are replanted with native vegetation). I also utilize nano-scale imaging techniques (TEM, SEM) together with magnetic measurements to determine the effects of deformation on magnetic remanence. I teach Mineralogy (GEOL 250), and special topics courses in soil and magnetism.
