Cal Poly Pomona
I am an assistant professor specializing in hard-rock geology. I teach classes such as mineralogy, geochemistry, megascopic petrology, igneous and metamorphic petrology, and field classes. My research applies petrologic and geochronologic techniques to field-based study of tectonic problems, with an emphasis on geologic mapping. Many of my active projects focus on aspects of the Cretaceous-to-present magmatic history of the Mojave Desert. I also have ongoing research interests in NW Nevada and the Ladakh Himalaya.
