I am an economic geologist interested in the formation and distribution of magmatic-hydrothermal ore deposits.  I graduated with a B.S. in geology from Oregon State University in 2022, where I participated in undergraduate research on using Ar-Ar thermochronology on detrital sandstone grains to determine sediment provenance.

My master's thesis, supervised by Dr. Hervé Rezeau, is focused on understanding the exhumation history of multiple porphyry copper deposits and their associated plutons within SE Arizona. I use U-Pb geochronology, U-Th/He and Fission-Track thermochronology, and thermobarometry to constrain the tectonic history of my study areas.
