My teaching interests revolve around all forms of geodynamics, or the changes the earth undergoes that are driven by its internal heat, by mantle convection, and by plate motion-tempered by isostasy and gravity. These broad topics appear in our introductory course (Geology 111), which I teach in almost every semester; in intermediate level courses such as Structural Geology (Geology 291); and in the upper level course Plate Tectonics and Continental Dynamics (Geology 401).
