Research Interests

My research focuses on marine carbonate deposition through time and how that informs our understanding of Earth’s past climate and seawater chemistry. In the field, I make sedimentological observations to inform petrography and sequence stratigraphy. In the lab, I use carbonate clumped isotope thermometry and a variety of microanalytical techniques to probe the temperature and fluid composition of depositional environments and diagenetic events. I am currently working in Svalbard, Oman, the Basin and Range and the mid-continent on the Neoproterozoic through end-Orodovician glaciation.
