What’s New

New paper published in Nature Communications

My latest paper on mechanisms of induced-seismicity uses the Pohang, Korea 2017 induced earthquake case study to investigate pore pressure increase and Coulomb static stress transfer.  We propose a comprehensive multi-process causal mechanism for injection induced seismicity.  Check it out here.

Trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, January 2020

In January, colleagues from NIU and I traveled with high school students from Illinois Math and Science Academy to the Yucatan Peninsula to learn about water quality and use.  We had a great time checking out cenotes and learning about the hydrogeology.

AGU 2019 Poster is ready

Lab Addition

My lab at NIU has a new member: a permeameter!  I’m waiting on some electrical work to get it completely set up, but it’ll be ready soon.

Accessibility in the Geosciences

Check out an article written about the accessibility research I’ve worked on in Colorado Arts and Sciences Magazine: Instructors improve the accessibility of geology

IAGD Accessible Field Trip at GSA 2019

I had the opportunity to attend the accessible field trip to Petrified Forest National Park while at GSA 2019.  The trip was a ton of fun with great people in a really awesome location.
