Mineralogy and petrology of alkaline rocks, especially those occurring in the Monteregian area of Quebec.

Mineralogy and geology of the New England region with emphasis on Connecticut.

Mineralogy of tin and tungsten containing greisens.

I'm currently a college junior studying both geology and chemistry at Keene State College. I've been collecting for around six years and have focused mostly on collecting minerals in the New England area.
