I am a structural geologists interested in interactions between tectonic and magmatic processes. As a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Syracuse University, my current work combines classical field geology, remote sensing, gas geochemistry, and seismic reflection methods to understand local and regional-scale deformation processes at tectonic-magmatic systems. Recent and ongoing studies focus on active continental rifting in East Africa, magma emplacement in large igneous provinces, and understanding the structure of monogenetic volcanic fields. Mainly, I enjoy working in any geological setting that contains a fault, fracture, dike or volcano – preferably all of the above.
