  • Research Interests: Coastal evolution and sea level rise
I joined the CRM Program in spring of 2013 to expand my knowledge of the North Carolina coastline. The extensive coastal policies and unique barrier island system make North Carolina the ideal place to study coastal geology and policy. My current research interests are in coastal evolution and sea level rise, with a multidisciplinary approach that includes sedimentology, stratigraphy, micropaleontology, geochemistry and modeling. In my spare time I enjoy most outdoor activities such as whitewater kayaking, SCUBA diving and rock climbing.
