I am currently a graduate student at Northern Illinois University.

I am currently
head teaching assistant (TA Coordinator) for the Department of Geology and Environmental Geosciences. (
See my resume here.)

I have conducted research on the volcanology of Jupiter's moon, Io, elevated convection in wintertime thunderstorms (i.e., thundersnow), geologic processes of Neptune's moon, Triton, and other topics. (See my research topics here, and my publications here.)

As the TA Coordinator, I organize the weekly topics our teaching assistants will instruct on for the introductory physical geology labs. (See my teaching page here.)
