Research Areas

Research interests are focused on regional tectonics and processes related to active transtentional deformation within the western Great Basin. The primary focus of my work is investigating the structural evolution of a major transcurrent fault system within the Eastern California Shear Zone and Walker Lane to document the displacement history, basin evolution, and displacement transfer among a distributed system of faults. Collection and processing of potential field geophysical data, geologic mapping, stratigraphic analysis, well log interpretation, and 2-D and 3-D modelling of subsurface basins are key aspects of my research.
