Research Interests

My research interests bridge the fields of paleoclimatology, paleoecology, archaeology, and low-temperature geochemistry.

Research and Activities

Recent research efforts are focused on climatic and ecological archives contained in accretionary hard-part remains of coastal marine shellfish and finfish from Holocene archaeological deposits and Neogene fossil deposits. These archives are microsampled at high resolution in the Paleoclimate & Paleoecology Laboratory.
