I am an Associate Professor at Michigan State University with appointments in the Department of Geological Sciences, Center for Integrative Studies in General Science, and CREATE for STEM Institute for Research on Science and Mathematics Education. I am also affiliated with MSU’s Cognitive Science Program and Environmental Science and Policy Program.

Ultimately, I hope to develop an empirical and theoretically consistent model for geocognition, a description of both the mechanisms by which novices gain understanding of geologic phenomena and the nature of working geological expertise.

Professional activities are documented on my CV.
