I'm originally from the western United States and have lived in Ballarat since 2009. My academic specialisation is in an area of Geology known as Tectonic Geomorphology. I have worked on marine terraces along the northern coast of Timor Leste to assess rates and style of deformation, and have collaborated with government and non-profit organisations (i.e. In Harm's Way) to assess various geologic hazards across the globe. My studies have taken me to the Caribbean, Italy, Switzerland, East Timor, Taiwan, India, Mexico, Peru, and of course Australia, to name a few.
