Interests: My primary interests include petrogenesis of metamorphic rocks in the eastern Blue Ridge of the southern Appalachians, and the tectonic evolution of that area. Much of my research is field based, however, I am also currently involved with electron microprobe analysis of metamorphic mineral assemblages collected from the eastern Blue Ridge. I teach a computer mapping class and continue to be very interested in the practical applications of desktop computers and software to geoscience problems. I lead several field trips each Year (Cheaha State Park, Blue Ridge, Llano, Texas) and lead the geology summer field camp taught in Texas and New Mexico.
