Research and Publications

My primary research area is Geoscience Education, where I research disability issues in the geosciences, academic and social engagement and geoscience field learning. When I have the chance, 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.
