External Associate – Climate Change Institute
Geologist – Vermont Geological Survey
My research involves reconstructing past glacier chronologies and climate variability using surficial mapping and geochronological techniques to determine the underlying causes of global climate change. My areas of study have included: Mt. Everest, Himalaya, Nepal; Eastern Tibetan Plateau; Mongolian Altai Mountains; Southern Alps, New Zealand; Northern Andes, Peru; Dry Valleys, Antarctica; Wind River Range, Wyoming; Katahdin, Maine. Recently I have been investigating how the glacial history of New England has impacted regional land use and local resources.
