I am a geophysicist who uses magnetic tools to answer geological and environmental questions. My research focuses mostly on using the magnetic properties of minerals to sort out the sources and movement of material underneath volcanic systems and in sedimentary environments. I also study the early development of the Earth's core and magnetic field. In the classroom, I like to experiment with different ways to use virtual globes such as Google Earth. Before coming to UW Tacoma, I taught at San Diego City College, Palomar College, and the University of California, San Diego./p>
