Research Statement: 

I consider myself first and foremost to be a carbonate sedimentologist, but I have a number of interests that include clastic sedimentology, low temperature geochemistry, depositional modelling, GIS, sea-level change/sequence stratigraphy and geoeducation. I have even been known to dabble in paleontology a bit (foraminifera, molluscs and corals). Above all, I believe in working with students on my geological research. The University of South Alabama may not have a graduate program in geology*, but we have some of the best undergraduate students anywhere and they do some of the best geology research that is done anywhere in the world. This page summarizes my present research and the results to date of these activities. If you are an undergraduate student interested in geological research at the University of South Alabama, click here for a list of current and past student research projects or feel free to e-mail me to discuss them personally.
