Career History

I joined USGS as a part-time field assistant in 1997 and was hired full-time to the Energy Resources team in 2001. My experience has included some international work on coal deposits and a lot of study in the Gulf Coast basin working on coalbed methane, coal resource assessment, conventional oil and gas assessment and shale petroleum systems, some of which has been published in the AAPG Bulletin. My primary research interests are in organic petrology and I manage an optical microscopy laboratory at USGS.

Vision Statement:

AAPG/EMD offers a top rate international platform for Petroleum Geoscience and in order to maintain a high standard, EMD should look to integrate a share programme with its divisions internationally. While AAPG education programmes and annual meeting offer a well-worn avenue for this, EMD programmes should expand internationally with GTWs and e-learning being two great avenues. The EMD website is another avenue that can be expanded to reach a world-wide audience.
