I earned my BSc at the University of Victoria in 2013. My honours research focussed on the trace element chemistry of the Troodos ophiolite. After graduation, I worked with the BC Geological Survey on the development geochemical exploration techniques for Nb, Ta, and REE. I have performed geophysical investigations for mineral exploration, aquifer studies, seismic hazards, and major infrastructure projects across Canada. Currently I am researching the application of hydrocarbon parameters in non-petroleum based mineral exploration.
