Current projects

As the Samples Coordinator, my focus is on the curation of geologic samples and on ensuring samples are properly archived to best serve the future of Wisconsin’s geological needs. I work closely with the staff at the WGNHS to ensure physical samples and data generated from projects are properly collected and stored.

I also manage the WGNHS Core Repository. I coordinate visits for researchers who would like to view, sample, and analyze our core or cuttings collections.
