I am interested in the role that exhumation and fluid-rock interactions have on tectonic and geochemical processes. I use (U-Th)/He thermochronology, geochemistry, and petrology to 1) date minerals that form during fluid alteration, 2) investigate the geochemical fingerprints of fluid-rock interactions and volatile cycling at different tectonic settings, and 3) constrain the thermal history of convergent and divergent plate margins. In addition, I am interested in the history of diversity in the geosciences and efforts to make the discipline more inclusive.
