Emily is a Research Associate/ Rock Curator managing rock collections composed of samples sourced from the ocean floor (via dredging or ROV) and terrestrial volcanic fields. Her research pursues geochemical, petrologic, and geochronological problems – with an emphasis on eruptive patterns and magmatic processes related to flood basalt emplacement, crystal growth, and geochemical cycling. Through her career, Emily hopes to bridge the gap between studies of terrestrial and submarine large igneous provinces! She also loves teaching and has industry experience in the fields of environmental consulting and mineral exploration. In her free time, Emily enjoys exploring rural post offices in Oregon with her corgi Regis!
