Fields of interest: 

paleoceanography, paleoclimatology, proxy development

My current work focuses on the development of the B/Ca proxy in planktic foraminifera for reconstructing ocean acidification at the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (56 ma). To do this, we are undertaking culture experiments in multiple species to constrain the effects of variable paleo-seawater chemistry on the behavior of the proxy and its response to multiple carbonate chemistry parameters.

Fields of interest: 

Geomorphology, Glacial Geology, Hydrology

I'm best labeled as a geomorphologist. Landscapes are, in part, a product of erosion, and my work aims to decipher clues about the patterns and rates of erosion recorded in landforms.

Erosion is especially dynamic in rugged landscapes, so as a geomorphologist I'm particularly drawn to high-mountain regions. I'm currently focused on a few tropical mountain belts, specifically those that show signs of glacial erosion. My work uses a combination of terrrestrial cosmogenic nuclide methods and remote sensing to describe the timing and nature of glacial erosion in these landscapes.

Fields of interest: 

Isotope geochemistry, paleoclimatology, paleoceanography, marine biogeochemistry

My research interests involve the application of major elements, trace elements and isotopes to investigate the interface between climate, biogeochemistry, and the environment. I am particularly interested in the tropics, and my recent projects have included stable isotope (dD) geochemistry in Ethiopia, redox (Fe, Cr, U) variability in Indonesia, and productivity and dust (231Pa/230Th, 232Th, d15N) fluctuations in the Central Equatorial Pacific. In my upcoming work, I will investigate the relationship between volcanism and global climate change at orbital timescales by tracking changes in hydrothermal vent activity as recorded in marine sediment cores from the Juan de Fuca Ridge.

My primary research interests are:

  • The role of ocean circulation (particularly the Southern Ocean) in the climate system
  • Dynamics of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current and its overturning circulation
  • Mixing and transport by ocean eddies
