I combine thermochronology, geochronology, and sedimentology to investigate the tectonic processes in orogenic systems around the world. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geology at Rowan University.
News & Updates
04/2019: What are the dynamic and thermal effects of spreading ridge subduction on the overriding plate? Check out my new paper in Geology co-authored by Julie Fosdick (UConn) that tracks isostatic uplift that precedes ridge subduction in the southern Patagonian Andes. This is one of the clearest orogen-scale thermochronology data sets I have ever seen!
01/2019: Great news! The fission track scope is ordered and on the way, and software, standards, and prep supplies are sitting in my office. Soon the RUFT (Rowan University Fission Track) Lab will be operational!
08/2018: The Sierras Pampeanas in the southern Central Andes are the modern analogue for the formation of the Rocky Mountains. Check out my new paper revising the timing of mountain formation in the Sierras Pampeanas
06/2018: Do the effects of climate change eclipse the effects of tectonics on sediment flux? Check out my new paper in Geology for new insight on this debate.
02/2018: Check out my new paper in Tectonicswith coauthors Jeff Trop (Bucknell University) and Ken Ridgway (Purdue University) on the forearc basin record of arc collision and accretion as documented in southern Alaska.
