The Summer flew by with days filled with exploring the western U.S. Here are a few photos from the summer of baseball, weddings, research and grant writing.
I successfully defended my PhD dissertation on 27 July 2015! It was great to see so many supportive friends and colleagues in the audience as I shared the results from four years of hard, but very fun, work! Thank you to all who came out!
I recently visited the beautiful island of St. Kitts. My visit to the island as a child is a bit of a blurry memory, but on this visit I was in awe at the geology of this volcanic island, the differences between the Atlantic and Caribbean Oceans, and the amazing people with whom I interacted.
I recently competed in a 24 hour mountain bike race in Tucson with many fellow geoscientists! Check out the story of this years event here: http://www.geo.arizona.edu/node/517
Here are some recent photos from my trip to Europe where I travelled in England, presented at Thermo2014 in Chamonix, and spent time working with colleagues at ETH Zürich and Universiteit Utrecht.
