Elsass, Kirke

Ph.D. Student
Montana State University
Professional Summary: 

My research focuses on human-stone interaction (including a number of processes like ceramics and concrete - in which products of geologic history have informed human behavior and humans have altered the geologic record). The connections to ecosystem well-being and sustainability come not only through the extraction from ecosystems (quarrying) but also through processing (various energy uses) and implementation (e.g. stone-based barrier creation like dams, highways, or even windows and poured-concrete basements).
