Fields of interest: 
Paleomagnetism, geomagnetism and rock magnetism, and their application to geologic problems. Current interests include Cenozoic and Mesozoic geomagnetic polarity time scales; paleoclimatology, paleogeography and tectonics of the Pangea supercontinent; paleofield intensity variations; and magnetic properties of sediments, oceanic basalts, and polar ice.
