A.B. in Geology, Amherst College, 1971

PhD, University of California, Los Angeles, 1976


My specific research interests lie in mineralogical aspects of metamorphic petrology, especially in elucidating the reaction histories of metamorphic rocks. My research is field-based, but has a significant laboratory component, applying analytical techniques to understanding minerals and rocks. More generally, we have been occupied for some time with unravelling the tectonic evolution of the eastern Piedmont of North Carolina, and there remains much to be done, beginning with basic geologic mapping of complex areas. Other areas I have worked in include southeastern California and northern New York.
