I am a geochronologist working on a diverse suite of earth science problems including climate change, critical mineral resources, deep-time thermochronology, winemaking, and earthquakes hazards. My primary toolkit is noble gas geochemistry, but I also dabble in water isotopes, statistics, geospatial modeling, and geologic mapping. I have a hard time turning down interesting new projects, and I shy away from the type of rote measurements that would probably make for a more impressive publication record.
