Research

My research centers on the origins, evolution, and energy resources of sedimentary basins, employing multiple methodologies on outcrop and subsurface data sets. A principal research focus, in collaboration with Professor Donald Lowe, is the characterization of deep-marine siliciclastic coarse-grained sediment accumulations (submarine fans). A second, long-running research effort lies in the tectonic evolution of eastern Asia (China and Mongolia), as reflected in the fill of sedimentary basins. A third principal research area is the relationship between mountain building and climate, especially in the western U.S. and Asia, conducted in collaboration with Professor Page Chamberlain.

Teaching

I co-teach undergraduate courses in sedimentary geology and energy resources and policy. My graduate courses include sedimentary basin analysis, petroleum geology, petroleum reservoir characterization and modeling, and interpretation of reflection seismic data.
