My PhD research focused on crustal deformation and surface process interactions on the island mountain belts of Trinidad and Tobago located in southeast Caribbean plate corner.

I investigate these topics with geomorphic analyses (GIS), traditional field mapping and with a variety of geochronologic tools, such as low-temperature thermochronology, cosmogenic, and optically stimulated luminescence dating. 

I have worked in glaciated and arid mountain ranges including southern Alaska, Canada, the NW Himalaya, Antarctica, and the Los Angeles Basin.
