Igneous petrology and geochemistry
I am interested in the geochemical evolution of the
lithosphere, especially as exemplified in the Quaternary. My current
research efforts are primarily focused on the timescales of magmatic processes
as constrained by analytical and theoretical considerations, including the in
situ analyses of Th isotopes in minerals that I developed for the high
resolution ion microprobe. Other targets of my research investigations
include the mantle lithosphere and lower crust, ocean island and arc volcanism,
exposure age dating, and accretionary prisms. In support of my research,
I have maintained a clean laboratory and thermal ionization mass spectrometry
laboratory for high precision - including U-series nuclides - isotopic
analyses, co-managed the UCLA Ion Microprobe Facility, and am now involved in
research employing a laser-assisted multi-collector inductively coupled mass
