I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences working in collaboration with Professor Matthew Hurtgen.

Broadly, I am a sedimentary and organic geochemist.  I focus on the redox evolution of the Earth, specializing in biogeochemical cycling. I use a range of geochemical tools, but focus on the stable isotopes of nitrogen, carbon and sulfur, with a particular interest in compound-specific, stable isotope techniques. My research interests  span the spectrum of geologic time from the Archean to modern systems. Current I am working principally on the Cretaceous and Neoproterozoic with and eye toward understanding future global change.
