Dominique is a geosciences PhD graduate student in the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) with a co-adviser in SHESC, at Arizona State University, Tempe Campus.

She is involved in two large research projects: Ledi-Geraru Research Project and the Hominin Sites and Paleolakes Drilling Project (HSPDP). Her work integrates sedimentology, stratigraphy, tephra geochemistry, geologic mapping, and structural geology to reconstruct hominin environments and the geochronological framework of the Pliocene and Pleistocene hominin records in East Africa.

Her research contributes towards the need for more thorough environmental records directly associated with hominins, and correlations between these records. In addition, her work contributes towards the history of rift basin development to understand how tectonics and climate influence landscape and resource change throughout hominin evolution in the Ledi-Geraru Research Project area, Ethiopia.
