Areas of Interest/Research

My primary research area is Geoscience Education, specifically academic and social engagement in geoscience learning environments and the barriers to participation for underserved groups in STEM. Most of this research centers around improving inclusion and career pathways for people with disabilities in the geosciences. My secondary research area is volcanology, where I utilizes near-surface geophysics to examine tephra deposits and sub-surface features of small-volume volcanic eruptions. Current research projects are focused on creating more inclusive and accessible field courses through location planning, technology, and collaborative teams. You can learn more about my research, teaching, and personal story on my Portfolio Website, linked below.

Service Roles:

  • Director of Operations, The International Association for Geoscience Diversity (theIAGD.org), a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to creating access and inclusion for students, faculty and professionals with disabilities in the Geosciences.
  • Committees: Undergraduate Curriculum; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
  • Experiential Learning Coordinator
