Area(s) of Expertise

My research falls into three main categories: 1) sedimentology and stratigraphy, which includes examining modern and paleo-critical zone processes or using chemostratigraphy, magnetostratigraphy, and basin-scale macrostratigraphy to describe depositional environments; 2) paleoclimatology and paleoecology, which includes developing and integrating terrestrial records (paleosols, paleobotany) to describe past climate and ecology or using proxy records to develop comparative models of major climate events in the past and future; and 3) geochemistry, which includes using paleosol geochemistry and magnetic mineralogy to develop new paleoclimate proxies or developing new methods and applications for organic, traditional carbonate, or clumped isotope chemistry and thermometry.
