Research Geologist with the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
Prior to joining the USGS as a Research Geologist in 2017, I spent 10 years at Coastal Carolina University, where I was an Associate Professor of Marine Science and did extensive undergraduate and graduate teaching, as well as research. I graduated from Oberlin College with a B.A. in Geology and Environmental Studies, and spent two years working at the USGS in Woods Hole, before going on to earn my Ph.D. in Earth Science from Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2007.
