A Little About Me

I’m a professional Geoscientist from the Philadelphia area, dedicating my life to exploring and researching the processes and scientific mechanisms underlying the world we live in. I have worked for 4 years in the public sector with a combination of field and remote sensing projects.

My Mission And Example Work

Field Science and Data Analysis

I am interested in studying the natural systems which shape and guide the processes of the natural world. With a strong background in mathematics, project reporting, and project development; I have headed fieldwork and GIS remote data analysis . My long-term goal is to explore the application of geologic principles in a professional setting.


In an effort to gain a better understanding of Global Warming Revisited, I have recently begun to use a new technique to investigate the organization and functionality of the diverse parts of my experimental model. I am currently looking to expand this work by collaborating with other labs who have the facilities and prior experience to investigate this project further.

Characterizing Late Pleistocene and Holocene Incision and Flooding Post-Glacial Southern New England

We still have only a very limited understanding of Surprising Effects of Rapid Climate Change. Answering questions about this is essential for understanding the mechanistic role it plays on other scientific processes, and for developing tools to further explore this research avenue with more sensitive measurements and improved data collection.

About Me

I’m a creative and talented Geoscientist with an interest and fascination in broad range of professional applications of geology.  Experience in environmental protection, geomorphic assessment, and field sample collection are among the many aspects of the physical sciences I have experience with.  My specialties lie in geomorpholgy, sedimentary analysis, and riparian systems.  However, I have trained in aspects across the field of geology and engineering geology. I enjoy dealing with experimental challenges and data analysis.  Of particular interest are dynamic systems on short timescales and the geohazards associated with them.

I'm accustomed to online interaction being my frequent form of communication.  I already have 4 years experience organizing online group sessions.

Please contact me to discuss the my qualifications for professional positions or to discuss research topics.

Beach Erosion Triggered by Spatial Imbalance of Longshore Sand Transport in Phan Thiet, Vietnam

In developing countries including Vietnam with rapid economic growth, the beach erosion has become severe. Various artificial facilities for economic development have been rapidly constructed on coasts, and once erosion occurs, stop-gap measures against erosion have been widely taken, resulting in further downcoast erosion. In this study, beach erosion was investigated by comparing aerial photographs and actual field observations on October 23, 2016 with those on November 9, 2017, taking beach changes in Phan Thiet as an example. The erosion mechanism in this area was studied on the basis of these field data.

Riparian Land-Use Impacts on Stream Bank and Gully Erosion in Agricultural Watersheds: What We Have Learned


Stream bank and gully erosion are major sources of nonpoint source pollutants, especially in landscapes dominated by agriculture. Implementation of upland conservation practices in landscapes dominated by agriculture reduces upland sediment transport more than water runoff, leading to excessive stream bank and gully erosion...
