Projects and/or Research Interests

I am responsible for the distribution, promotion, publication, and archiving of the DGGS geophysical data collection. These data are critical to Alaska's resource exploration, transportation, and environmental stakeholders. I also manage the acquisition of new geophysical data for the benefit of the State of Alaska. My specialty is potential field geophysics including magnetic, electromagnetic, gravity, and radiometric methods. I assist with data type selection, survey design, data interpretation, and data modelling for a variety of applications with a focus on resource exploration and permafrost.

Prior to joining DGGS I worked as a geophysicist for Rio Tinto and various junior exploration companies.
