I am a PhD student in the Earth Science Department at Rice University in Houston, TX. I study modes of continental extension on rift margins with Dr. Dale Sawyer and Dr. Gary Gray. My specialties are seismic interpretation and structural geology with some seismic reflection data processing. I currently focus on the Galicia-Newfoundland conjugate margins and core complexes.

In my spare time, I draw and paint, practice to be fluent in Italian and Japanese, run a lot, play Sid Meyer's Civilization V to get all the Steam achievements, and make bad puns.
