My primary research area is Geoscience Education. My research to date examines academic and social engagement,  field learning and improving access to the geosciences for students with disabilities. A secondary research interest in volcanology focuses on using near-surface geophysics to examine eruptive deposits and sub-surface features of phreatomagmatic eruption sites.

As the Director of Operations for the the non-profit International Association for Geoscience Diversity (, I handle the day-to-day operations of the organization, collaborate on the design and execution of accessible & inclusive field trips, create multi-media products, and serve as a mentor and advocate for geoscience students with disabilities.
