Joined KGS in 2001.
- PhD Candidate: Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Kentucky
Research area: Geotechnical-geophysical investigations of shallow colluvial landslides
- Master of Science Geology, Eastern Kentucky University, August 1998 - May 2001
- Bachelor of Arts Geology, Hanover College, September 1992 - May 1996
Develop landslide hazards research under the Geologic Hazards Section, which includes maintaining the landslide inventory database, landslide mapping, and site-specific landslide monitoring and characterization projects. Emphasis also put on geologic hazard communication and outreach to public and private stakeholders interested in hazard assessment.
