Research Interests: In the past I've researched models of foreshock occurrence along the San Andreas fault and studied the mineralogy of the Cannon mountain cliff, in Franconia Notch, New Hampshire. At Dartmouth, I study the mechanisms of redox reactions occurring at mineral surfaces.
Life Interests: Climbing things - especially *big* rocks and frozen waterfalls!
Why Dartmouth?: I came to Dartmouth Earth Science because of three things - the community in the Earth Science department, the interesting set of research foci that community cultivates, and the vast outdoor playground right out the back door.
