My research interests include using isotope geochemistry to understand earth's past climates. I focus on using radiogenic isotope and trace element tracers found in ocean sediments to reconstruct the complex relationships between biological productivity, deep-ocean circulation, and continental aridity and their impacts on the global carbon cycle on millennial timescales.
