My primary research interests center on the chemical and microbial reactions that occur during early diagenesis with a view toward understanding the evolution of ocean chemistry and early life. Outside of the lab, I enjoy spending time with my family camping, hiking, visiting museums, and enjoying the seasons here in Indy.

Graduate Student, MS
I have diverse research interests that include basin analysis and stratigraphy, in particular sequence stratigraphy and the interplay between sediment control and base level, petroleum reservoir genesis and maturation, paleogeography and historical geology, and of course a love of all things paleontological. My masters thesis will entail completing a geochemical analysis of the marine to non-marine transitional lithofacies associated with cyclothemic sections of four Upper Pennsylvanian cores.
