My research focuses on using sedimentary rocks to reconstruct ancient subduction zones and continental collisions. I utilize a combination of field work, sedimentology, stratigraphy, geo-/thermochronology, and provenance proxies. I use the evolution of ancient forearc and foreland basins to explore the links between geodynamics, tectonics, topography, magmatism, and biogeography.

I am the laboratory technician for the Basin Analysis and Helium Thermochronology Lab (BAHTL) at the University of Connecticut.
