Graduated from the the University of Waterloo in my hometown. My current research is on the Northern Limb of the Bushveld Igneous Complex, specifically looking at the impact of footwall assimilation. My supervisors are Matthew Leybourne and Pedro Jugo.
My work experience has included exploration and production on gold and iron, in Ontario, Nunavut and Labrador. I completed my undergraduate studies in my hometown of Waterloo, and at the start of my masters, traveled to South Africa for 5 months to teach introductory geology at the University of Limpopo and for the collection of samples.
