Curriculum Vitae


I am interested in applying sedimentologic, geochemical, and stratigraphic analyses to furthering our understanding of various paleoenvironments and climates; especially concerning past perturbations in the global carbon cycle, changes in sea level, and global ice volume (eustasy). Understanding the mechanisms controlling global change in the past is the only means by which we might strive to make informed decisions concerning our future. As such I am also interested in furthering my understanding of environmental policy and how the role of scientists is evolving in that realm.
