Current research: I help out on a project based in offshore Guinea, West Africa that involves interpretation of seismic reflection data. This area is at the junction of seafloor spreading from North and South Atlantic and is fascinating tectonically.

Current teaching: I teach Interpretation of Reflection Seismic Data. This is a hands-on course using seismic workstations and up-to-date industry software.

Favorite Field Trip: Right now the Grand Canyon ranks high. It is a fascinating area both for its geology and its beauty. I have seen it from the top and also from the bottom, experienced on a rafting trip.
