Undergraduate Advising

Welcome!  I advise first-year and transfer undergraduate students in the School of Earth and Climate Sciences (ECS).  If you are interested in studying Earth sciences, geology, geosciences, climate sciences, paleontology, hydrology, environmental sciences, or glaciers, send me an email and we can set up a time to discuss your options.  If you are new to the university, we can talk about:

If you are transferring departments or institutions, we can talk about:

For current majors, we can talk about:

  • Becoming a research assistant and applying for internships
  • Finding a field camp or capstone project that is right for you
  • Next steps for after graduation (e.g., graduate school; environmental science; geology; consulting; mapping; mining and exploration; soil science; geochemistry; policy; science education; GIS certificate; hydrology; engineer; data analysis; government jobs)

Courses I Teach

ERS 101 – Intro to Geology (offered every fall and spring semester)

NFA 117 – Issues and Opportunities (offered in the fall)




I study how glaciers respond to climate over time.  My current research focuses on mountain glaciers in New Zealand, Uganda, and Colombia.  I use numerical models to grow glaciers to their former extents because models are the best way to test multiple possible scenarios.  The landscape tells a story and I aim to help interpret that story.
