With a background in structural and Quaternary geology, I've spent much of my career deciphering earthquake records from deformed soils and sediments. And now I've come to learn that undeformed soils also have exciting stories to tell! As a research scientist at Virginia Tech, I provide support in data collection for near-surface geophysics, high-resolution topographic surveying, and measurement of soil properties for the development of our "Virtual Critical Zone" demonstrations.
