I'm a third year PhD student working with Dr. Willy Guenthner in the thermochronology lab group. I'm researching the kinetics of zircon radiation damage accumulation and annealing using Raman Spectroscopy to improve zircon-He age models. My secondary research includes field work on the Lucerne pluton, ME to explore radiation damage zircon as a source mineral for remobilized uranium present in demineralized faults and fractures and local groundwater.
