My primary field of research and teaching is Structural Geology, or the deformation (stretching, breaking, folding...) recorded in the rocks of Earth's outer layer as a result of plate-tectonic stresses. Currently I'm writing the results of a kinematic analysis of faults of the southern segment of the Rio Grande rift in Trans-Pecos Texas and northern Chihuahua. This research was part of a PhD study through the University of Texas at El Paso, from whom I received a PhD in 2023. I have plenty of ideas for field-based research projects at the undergraduate and graduate levels within this and other areas of structural geology. If you are an incoming graduate student, or a transferring undergraduate interested in doing research, contact me by email to talk about possible research projects. 

I also have great interest in science education in general and Geoscience Education in particular, and am an active member of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers.
