View Curriculum Vitae




I graduated with honors from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX with a B.Sc. in Geosciences in 2012 with a thesis on Venus mapping. I completed my doctoral thesis on Venusian geochemistry with Dr. Ralph Harvey at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio with a dissertation entitled "Geologic materials exposed to Venus surface conditions using the Glenn Extreme Environment Rig (GEER)". I also completed research on anomalously large metal nodules in ordinary chondrite meteorites, officially classifying meteorite NWA 10106. I received my PhD in Geological Sciences from CWRU in 2019. During my graduate career I was a teaching assistant in several geology courses including igneous and metamorphic petrology and mineralogy.
