About Me

I am an early career geologist and a graduate of California State University Fullerton, having earned my M.S. in Geology while working under the guidance of Dr. Vali Memeti in the Spring of 2020. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, and received my B.S. in Geology from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in the Spring of 2015. Following graduation, I worked as a research assistant for six months on a project involving volcanic rocks near Death Valley. I continued to live in Las Vegas until 2016, when I moved to California to attend graduate school at CSUF. My recently completed research project focused on characterizing shallow intrusion emplacement using field mapping and single mineral geochemistry, techniques that I plan to continue applying towards the geosciences.
