Biography & Research Interests

I am a field geologist/petrologist with primary interests in igneous processes, including volcanic deposits and ore formation. I've been at MBMG for 10 years and enjoy the work. My active projects are related to geologic mapping and critical commodity (including REE's) research throughout Montana. My work involves geologic mapping, rock sampling and bulk geochemistry and geochronology for quadrangle-scale field studies.
