Professor of Geology and Geochemistry
Metamorphic petrology; experimental petrology; high-pressure aqueous geochemistry; mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal systems; Cenozoic hydrothermal systems of western North America.
- High-pressure experiments in the PTX Laboratory investigating how minerals dissolve in water in the lower crust and upper mantle.
- Studies of metamorphism of oceanic gabbros from the East Pacific Rise to understand the timing and temperatures of fluid-rock interaction in the lower crust of mid-ocean ridges.
- Investigation of the links between fluid flow, mineral reaction, and permeability in the Spanish Peaks fossil hydrothermal system, south-central Colorado.
