Welcome to my website! I am a Lecturer and researcher at the University of Florida, Gainesville. My primary research area is Geoscience Education, where I research academic and social engagement and geoscience field learning. Most of this research centers around diversity and inclusion of underrepresented groups in STEM, primarily people with disabilities. I also research topics in volcanology through the use of near-surface geophysics to examine eruptive deposits and sub-surface features of phreatomagmatic (water + magma) eruption sites.
In my service role as Director of Operations for the the non-profit International Association for Geoscience Diversity (theIAGD.org), I co-coordinate the day-to-day operations of the organization, design and execute accessible & inclusive field trips, create multi-media products, and serve as a mentor and advocate for geoscience students, faculty and professionals with disabilities.
