  1. Hi bloonan:
    That is a difficult question to answer because there are many accomplishments that I feel proud of and are equal or similar value to me. On a personal level, having a family and sustaining it is pretty impressive to me! Also, to have dedicated myself to study geology and earning a Ph.D. is important. On the research side, I have contributed to the understanding of the plate tectonic history of the North American and Caribbean plates. It is a small part of the jigsaw puzzle that is the theory of plate tectonics, but it is an important contribution. In terms of adventure, I once travelled along one of the longest underground rivers in the world and came out alive! The underground river flows through karst terrain in Puerto Rico. I had to float on water through caverns, watch bats hanging above my head, and climb out of a large sinkhole. Now, I hope that in the future, I can do something more impressive that is related to helping others.
