I study the carbon cycle over the broadest range of Earth history.  I am particularly interested in the interactions among the atmosphere, biosphere, and hydrosphere, and their roles in modulating diverse and fundamental transitions in Earth history. In addition to geochemistry and paleoclimatology, I am also interested in energy science and policy.
