linebreak

I am a chemical oceanographer/paleoceanographer interested in studying modern oceanic processes and the ocean's role in past climate. My research focuses on i) unraveling the biogeochemical behavior of radiogenic isotopes (Neodymium (Nd), Lead (Pb), Strontium (Sr)) and Rare Earth Elements (REEs) concentration in the modern ocean, ii) using the observational relationship between radiogenic isotopes and ocean circulation in the modern ocean to better understand the past ocean and its link to global climate change, and iii) exploring the paleo-proxy potential of new and non-traditional isotope systems and their measurement protocols. Currently I am also working on  biogeochemical modeling of particle reactive elements (Pa, Th) to understand their cycling in modern oceans.
