Description of Research
Summary Statement of Research Interests
I use biogeochemical analytical approaches to answer intriguing questions about climatic and ecological change. Organic geochemical and compound-specific isotopic approaches provide new tools for high resolution studies. Current projects include compound-specific carbon isotopic reconstruction of paleovegetation and development and application of hydrogen isotopic proxies for paleohydrology.
