My primary interests are in the petrology and tectonic evolution of mountain belts around the world including the Himalayas of Pakistan and Tibet, the Sierras de Pampeanas of Argentina, the Appalachians of the eastern U.S., and most recently, the Rocky Mountains of the western U.S. In the summer of 2002, I spent two weeks studying the geology of the Blacktail Mountains of Montana along with my former undergraduate advisor; talk about coming full circle. At BSU, we cultivate and foster this same type of student-faculty interaction. Undergraduates are encouraged to participate and are included in all aspects of our active professional research program.
