I have conducted research on the volcanology of Jupiter's moon, Io, elevated convection in wintertime thunderstorms (i.e., thundersnow), frost quakes, and other topics.

    (See my research topics here)
     (See my publications here.)

As the Graduate TA Coordinator for two years at NIU, I organized the weekly topics our teaching assistants
instructed for the introductory physical geology labs.
      (See my teaching page here.)
I currently do research on many topics in my spare time.
