Analyzing the sandstone-dominated units of the Mesoproterozoic Fury and Hecla Basin, Nunavut, Canada
I grew up in northeastern Wisconsin. For my undergraduate education I attended Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas and graduated with an H.BSc in geoscience. I then moved to Sudbury in the summer of 2018 to pursue Precambrian sedimentology. My interests include understanding basin formation during supercontinent amalgamation through analyzing facies in clastic rocks and conducting provenance studies based on detrital zircon geochronology and isotopic work.
Research Project Title
Analyzing the sandstone-dominated units of the Mesoproterozoic Fury and Hecla Basin, Nunavut, Canada.
Research Project Description
My project concerns the Mesoproterozoic Fury and Hecla Basin loocated in Nunavut, Canada. I will aim to characterize the sedimentology, understand the depositional history and constrain the basin dynamics. My project is funded through an NSERC strategic partnership grant with the Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office, Laurentian University, McGill University, and Université du Québec à Montréal. My supervisors are Alessandro Ielpi (Laurentian University) and Galen Halverson (McGill University).
