Aubry's undergraduate senior thesis "Sedimentation, Geochemistry, and Mineralogy across the Frasnian-Fammenian Boundary, northwestern China" was an important contribution to one of the primary DAGGER projects. Aubry recognized that the size distribution of framboidal pyrite can be used to determine the extent and severity of ocean anoxia in sediments that are not black shales. Aubry is currently at the University of Utah working on an M.S. and Ph.D. in Sedimentology.
