My future and proposed research plans include continual application and improvement of the cosmogenic nuclide and luminescence geochronological techniques. My long-term goal is to establish a vigorous research plan and collaborations, primarily focusing on tectonically active and environmentally sensitive regions, such as the North American southwest, the Himalaya, the Arctic, and the Southern Alps.
