I am an igneous petrologist interested in the processes that govern the magma reservoirs beneath volcanoes. Specifically, I use petrology, geochemistry, diffusion chronometry, experimental petrology, thermodynamic modeling, and statistical modeling to better understand the processes and timescales associated with volcanic eruptions.
Currently, I am a National Science Foundation Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellow, working at Oregon State University in Corvallis with Adam Kent. Come 2022, I will be joining the faculty at Central Washington University as an Assistant Professor.
When I'm not doing science, I enjoy dancing, biking, walking [fast], adventuring with Fuji the mini blue heeler, cooking, and eating (especially Mexican and Persian food).
