I am always looking for passionate students to conduct petrological/geological research, using instruments available at Fredonia and/or collaborating institutions. Interested students are encouraged to email me or stop by my office (122 Houghton Hall) to discuss potential projects.

Current opportunities:

    • Pressure-Temperature-time history of high-grade metamorphic rocks

    • Kimberlite petrogenesis

    • Calcsilicate metasomatism in the eastern Jinsha Suture, Tibetan Plateau

    • Origin and characteristics of serpentinites in the Jinsha Suture, Tibetan Plateau

If you have any research ideas, feel free to chat with me. I will try to help further develop it and help seek research funding to support it.
