My teaching background includes laboratory-intensive courses at the undergraduate level at the University of Utah where I taught igneous and metamorphic petrology, global environmental change, and introductory earth science courses. In my more recent role as a research scientist and laboratory manager I instruct student and faculty users of the Central Analytical Research Facility (CARF) in the theory and practice of electron probe microanalysis applied across disciplines in materials and earth science, and also serve in a co-supervisory role for graduate student research projects.
