I graduated from the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Victoria in 2009. Following this, I worked in the Cape Smith belt of northern Quebec where I was first introduced to interpreting airborne magnetic data. In 2010 I began an M.Sc. at the University of Waterloo studying shear zone deformation in the Alexander terrane in north coastal British Columbia. For this work, completed in 2013, I was awarded the Jack Henderson Prize (Structural Geology and Tectonics Division of the Geological Association of Canada) and the Dean of Science Award (The University of Waterloo). In 2013 I returned to industry where I developed an interest in structural controls on epithermal mineralization. I am currently working as a Research Associate on the Geoscience BC funded Targeting Resources through Exploration and Knowledge (TREK) project where I can integrate my interests in structural geology and aeromagnetic interpretation while conducting field-based research.
