Geothermal and mineral exploration

MS, Winter 2013



I am an experienced geothermal and mineral exploration geologist, having spent the past 6 years working on active and extinct geothermal systems (porphyry copper and epithermal gold). I excel at all aspects of fieldwork and am an experienced technical writer. I enjoy working in groups developing conceptual models of systems and am keen to work more with 3D modeling, especially as it can be used to improve the collaboration between geoscientists and reservoir engineers. I do my best work when in a position with a fairly even balance between field and office time.
