Please visit my website for a list of publications, a full CV and more up to date information about my current projects.

My research goals focus on furthering our understanding of the climate system through the application of geochemical techniques and reconstruction of paleoclimatic records. Specifically, I am interested in glacial/interglacial tranistions in climate and the mechanisms that amplify insolation forcing. My current project focuses on reconstructing past movements of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) using 232Th, (231Pa/230Th)xs,0 and and 230Th normalized productivity proxies.  The goal of this project is to ground-truth hypotheses about the mechanisms moving CO2 to/from the deep ocean on glacial/interglacial timescales.
