Research Interests

I investigate a variety of petrologic problems pertaining to the formation of the continental crust, mass transfer occurring at subduction zones, and temporal variations in the chemistry and character of igneous rocks. My general approach to geologic questions begins with detailed field studies that are complimented by a number of techniques, including geochemistry, geochronology, and modeling.
