College of Earth, Ocean, & Environment
I currently have three major focus areas in my research: high-resolution geophysics in fisheries studies; geological and geotechnical aspects of offshore wind projects; and offshore geothermal energy.
Undergraduate courses that I teach include: freshmen first year experience seminar; freshmen honors colloquia in energy and earth resources; introductory-level general geology; structural geology and plate tectonics; and senior seminar in petroleum geology and energy. Graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses that I teach include: environmental and applied geology, geophysics, and geological aspects of offshore wind.
I am the education coordinator and a governing scientist within the University's Center for Carbon-free Power Integration. I have served as a Co-Chair of the University of Delaware Sustainability Task Force and I am a Past-President of the University Faculty Senate.
