Ph.D. Student

I am broadly interested in Paleozoic to recent tectonic problems in various settings. For my B.Sc. research, I have worked on 3D modelling and economical analysis of an orogenic gold deposit. For my M.Sc. research, I have worked on petrology, (isotope)-geochemistry, 40Ar/39Ar thermochronology of Almond Trondhjemite (Southern Appalachians, AL) and its tectonic implications. In UConn, I will focus on investigating basin history in Sierras Pampeanas (Argentina) through geochemistry, sedimentology and geo/thermo-chronology. In a broader context, this work aims to further the understanding of polycyclic sedimentation and related proxies in orogenic basins.
