teaching & learning

My teaching efforts are primarily focused on preparing our Geological Sciences (and geology-adjacent) undergraduates for lasting success through our field-based introductory geology course for SEOE majors (GEOL 201), our required sedimentary geology course (GEOL 325), and our undergraduate capstone field geology course (GEOL 500). On occasion I teach the Geological Sciences graduate breadth requirement course Regional Tectonics (GEOL 735).

My teaching is heavily reliant upon active learning, including field- and lab-based data collection and interpretation. Since 2016, my course-related field trips account for nearly 7,000 student-days in the field.

Observing the Earth

GEOL 201 is a field-based introductory course designed to prepare majors, minors, and adjacent students with a foundation for success in the geosciences.


Field Geology

GEOL 500 is the capstone course for the Geological Sciences major and is taught in the American West each summer.

Stratigraphy & Sedimentary Basins

GEOL 325 is a class-, lab-, and field-based course focused on sedimentary rocks, stratigraphic architecture, and their applications to geologic problems of significance.


Regional Tectonics

GEOL 735 is a graduate course for geoscientists of all disciplines who want to gain experience in the use of tools of regional tectonics analysis.
