Biography

I started as a Support Geologist with the Earthquake Hazards Program (EHP) in December, 2019. I help my team conduct research of active faults (primarily) in the Intermountain West via fieldwork, mapping and other desktop / GIS research methods and by maintaining field equipment and vehicles. Since starting this position I have contributed to projects related to the Eastern Tennessee Seismic Zone, the Wasatch fault zone, updates to the National Seismic Hazard Model, and more.

I also help with EHP and general USGS science outreach, education and communication by creating social media content, through local commnuity outreach, with interactive ArcGIS storymaps (aka Geonarratives - see Ridgecrest Storymap below), and more.

I am currently working a detail with the Office of Communications and Publishing where I help cover earthquake, marine and other science within the USGS via media engagement, writing news releases, and more.
