I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geological Science at the University of Missouri-Columbia. My research focuses on evaluating temporal and spatial patterns of strain by integrating structural analysis with low-temperature thermochronology. I am particularly interested in understanding the time-scales, progression, and drivers of deformation and landscape evolution. Current areas of focus are the Basin and Range in southern Nevada and eastern California, offshore basins in southeastern China (e.g., Pearl River Mouth andEast China Sea Shelf basins), and the U.S. midcontinent in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
I am always looking for outstanding M.S and Ph.D. students (full funding). Please contact me if you are interested.
