I have always been interested in the small details without which there would be no “big picture.” My focus has been on microstructural analysis of rocks, particularly on small-scale deformation structures. I believe that understanding the small-scale structures is the key to understanding rock deformation as a whole. In this area, I have been working on developing new uses and techniques for SEM-based cathodoluminescence systems, particularly in applications to be used in microfracture analysis. Besides structural studies, since 1995 I have been involved in developing Web-based distribution systems for geoscience information. In my spare time, I continue to take an interest in the pre-Mesozoic geology of Central Texas.
