Research Interests:

My research interests focus on both the surface and subsurface analysis of sedimentary basins and the stratigraphy of basin-fill deposits. The projects I am currently involved with include reservoir scale sequence stratigraphy of the Iles Formation - NW Colorado, stratigraphy and hydrocarbon potential of Cretaceous rocks in the Green River basin of Wyoming, and the study of Pennsylvanian Morrow incised valley-fill sequences of eastern Colorado and western Kansas.
