He's had limited field experience prior to the summer 2019 IRES Internship that include course related field work and field experience from the 2018 Fall NMGS Field Conference. He has worked as a Supplemental Instructional Leader four semesters for Physical Geology 101, acting as outside classroom support for students enrolled in the course. The opportunity has allowed him to improve in his fieldwork as well gaining knowledge of operating multiple pieces of laboratory equipment.
