  • As a recent addition to the WGNHS (2013), my goal is to develop research projects that are useful to Wisconsin’s citizens around Wisconsin’s Precambrian rocks. Potential projects with practical applications might bear on economic geology or the interaction between Precambrian bedrock and groundwater. I am most interested in questions related to the evolution of Precambrian sedimentary basins and depositional environments.

    • Develop a Precambrian research program at WGNHS
