I am interested in sedimentary processes and sequence stratigraphy. Currently, I do research in CU-Boulder’s Thermochronology Research and Instrumentation Laboratory. My work attempts to better constrain the transition from contraction to extension in the Basin and Range, specifically the Ruby Mountains – East Humboldt Range - Wood Hills metamorphic core complex in northeastern Nevada, by using low temperature apatite, zircon, and titanite (U-Th)/He thermochronology in upper crustal rocks.
