About Derek

I am a seismologist and geophysicist interested in interdisciplinary collaborations with other Earth scientists to understand deep Earth structures and their effects on past and present tectonics and landscapes. I love teaching and working with students of all levels and backgrounds, and appreciate the land grant ethos of CSU and our drive to optimize our public good.
