Research:

I am interested in studying knowledge acquisition in the cognitive methods geologists use both when developing conceptual models, and when classifying observational data according to these conceptual models.  

I am particularly interested in improving our operational understanding of the propagation of uncertainty within geologic reasoning when it is expressed in maps and models.
