Teaching

Courses

I teach several courses at the graduate and undergraduate level in the fields of metamorphic geology, field geology, and deformation. Courses taught over the last 3 years include:

  • GEOL 2006: Field geology I
  • GEOL 3006: Field geology II
  • GEOL 3207: Introduction to metamorphic petrography/petrology
  • GEOL 4307: Polyphase metamorphism and deformation
  • GEOL 5207: Topics in metamorphic geology
