Professional Interests

Current research interest is focused on evaluation of post-fire weathering mechanisms related to soil clay mineralogy, in particular, chlorite and smectite.  These evaluations include physical, structural, and chemical modifications to the clay minerals and are both field based, from prescribed fire, and laboratory simulated.
