I'm an interdisciplinary scientist whose research focuses on addressing aspects of carbonate diagenesis. Current research projects include 'Dolomite Stoichiometry as a Record of Changing Dolomitizing Fluid Chemistry' and 'Global Variations in Dolomite Stoichiometry and Cation Ordering'. I apply various tools in my research including X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, thin-section petrography, and stable isotope geochemistry.
