I am actively recruiting graduate students to begin work in August 2022.

Projects focus on plant uptake and fractionation of metals, trace metal cycling during regional-scale geologic events, and the controls on metal (re)distribution during ore forming processes. I am always open to explore other related areas if you have ideas for a project. Feel free to reach out if you are interested or have any questions.
