Teaching

courses taught

  • GEOL 4725 - Field Based Special Topics in Geoscience
    Secondary Instructor - Summer 2019
    Explores selected geological subjects of special interest in a field setting. May be repeated up to 8 total credit hours. Same as GEOL 5725.
  • GEOL 5001 - Physics and Chemistry of the Solid Earth
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Reviews the physical and chemical characteristics of the solid earth, from the core to the crust, and the processes that govern behavior through the earth. Lectures are supplemented with readings from the recent literature. Topics include convection, phase transitions, melt generation, forces of plate tectonics, origin of continents and lithosphere, continental tectonics, and earthquakes.
