Research Interests

  • Recent (late Quaternary to modern) marine environmental change, utilizing the geochemistry of microfossils and corals to determine rates and magnitude of climate change, the response and adaptation of species to environmental change, and the relationships between climate in marine and terrestrial environments. Stable isotopes (d18O, d13C, d15N), trace elements (Mg/Ca, Sr/Ca), radiocarbon, and species assemblages are used as proxies for temperature and environmental change.

Areas of Emphasis

  • Marine Ecology


  • Geology
