- Carleton College (1989)
- Stanford University (1993)
Within the major, I teach courses in Structural Geology, Tectonics,
Field Geology, Earth Systems Science, Technical Writing for Geologists.
I also teach The Control of Nature, an interdisciplinary upper division
I am fascinated by mountains. That's why I'm a geologist, and that's
why I study structural geology and tectonics. I have worked in
northwestern Alaska, on rocks that have been down a subduction zone
(and back), and in Vermont, on faulting that occurred during intrusion
of a granite pluton. I am currently working in Colorado, on deformation
and metamorphism of the Vallecito Conglomerate.
