I am an isotope geochemist and stratigrapher who uses non-traditional stable isotopes (Ca, Sr, Cr, Mg, Fe) to investigates the effects of past changes in Earth’s history from marine sedimentary rocks. Combined with these proxies, I also use numerical box models to understand how these global biogeochemical changes occurred. More recently, my research has been focused on understanding how anoxia developed and was sustained during Ocean Anoxic Event 2 (OAE 2).


I am actively seeking high motivated undergraduate and graduate students and postdocs to come join my group starting Fall ’22. For prospective graduate student and postdocs, please contact me with a copy of your CV and provide me with a little bit more detail about yourself and what you are interested in working on.
