Research Interests

I use uranium decay series isotopes, mainly thorium-230, to examine deep marine sediments to interpret sediment mass accumulation rates along with other paleoceanographic proxies to reconstruct past oceanogrpahic, atmospheric, and climatic cond.  My research focuses on examining the assumptions in the thorium-230 methodology in the Eastern Equatorial Pacific, where controversy exists between 230Th-derived MARs and those derived in the traditional manner using age models.
