  • Ph.D. University of Wyoming, 2008
  • M.A. UC Santa Barbara, 1994
  • B.S. Cal Poly Pomona, 1992

Research Interests

  • Global Seismology
  • Applied Geophysics

Geophysics research opportunities: (1) Applied geophysics fieldwork (electrical resistivity and induced polarization) for groundwater and soil moisture studies. (2) Seismological study earth's core-mantle boundary


I teach courses in geology & geophysics and supervise student research and senior projects in these areas.

The rest of the time I am probably on a hike or mountain bike ride!

More information about geology & geophysics at Cal Poly can be found here.
