Laboratory Supervisor and Instructor
Igneous Petrology/Hydrogeology


I teach the laboratory sections of both of our introductory courses (GEOL 150 and 155) and have taught Mineralogy (GEOL 250) on a number of occasions. I came to Macalester after 5 years of doing hydrogeology with two different environmental consulting firms here in the Twin Cities. My other duties include maintaining, running, and user instruction for the instrumentation housed in the Macalester Science Division’s Keck Laboratory (see our Department Resources page). I also manage our student work study force, maintain departmental computer facilities, maintain our web content, and do a plethora of other tasks.
