Research

My research focuses on understanding ocean carbonate chemistry during ocean acidification events, specifically the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) Ocean Acidification Event. Working in Andrew Jacobson's Radiogenic Isotope Laboratory, I use a high-precision double-spike technique to measure calcium isotopes (δ44/40Ca) of foraminifera spanning the PETM. Furthermore, my interest extends to method development of boron isotopes, a proxy used to determine paleo-pH.
