Originally from the great state of Michigan, I am currently an Assistant Professor at The Pennsylvania State University.  Before starting at Penn State, I obtained my PhD from the University of Alberta and spent several years as a postdoc at the Carnegie Institution for Science in the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism. 


As an outdoor enthusiast I spend my spare time experimenting with many different activities.  Hobbies that have stuck with me so far include fly fishing, water skiing, windsurfing, hiking, and hunting, although rock climbing and biking are new and interesting. 


I also enjoy sports in general and am learning to appreciate the similarities between my beloved basketball and the game of soccer.
