- Ph.D., Geology, Princeton University. Project: Fluid dynamic and geochemical models of shallow lakes, the Amazon estuary and bedded barite deposits
The major thrust of my research is applying sound hydrodynamic principles and models to fundamental problems of geochemistry and sedimentation in surface water environments. This is accomplished by acquiring relevant data on surface water settings and incorporating them into models of varying sophistocation. I presently working on three surface environments: Pleistocene Lake Bonneville in the western United States; alluvial channels in the intermountain west; and pit mine lakes.
