A marine geologist and sedimentologist by training, I have continued to be active in studies of coral reefs, both ancient and modern. In more recent years, I have focused my attention on earth systems and science education as it applies to K-12 settings, with grants mostly from NSF, EPA, and the Colorado Department of Education.
Overall in my career, I have been involved in acquiring and administering about $5 million in external grants and contracts. I currently serve as Secretary of the Poudre Learning Center, Chair of the Friends of Union Colony Schools, and I have been an officer for many state, regional, and national professional organizations. I am happy to have served on 11 doctoral committees, 31 masters committees, and have supervised 6 undergraduate Honors theses.Selected Publications
