I'm an Economic Geologist who uses experiments from the lab and  samples mapped and collected in the field to understand how crustal magmatic and metamorphic processes control the distribution of elements in the upper Earth.  My research uses structural geology, geochemistry, and field observations to understand crystal growth in magmatic and hydrothermal environments.
