I am an isotope geochemist interested in understanding and tracking earth surface processes in a variety of environments on both geologic timescales and throughout the modern. Some examples of previous research include tracing mineral dust provenance in Antarctic ice during major climate transitions, and exploring the effects of physical and chemical weathering on newly developed isotope systems. This research involves clean lab chemistry and high precision isotope analysis on a thermal ionization mass spectrometer (TIMS) or a multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (MC-ICPMS). There is also the potential to incorporate a significant amount of fieldwork depending on the research area and project. If you are interested in conducting research please feel free to contact me.
