My current work focuses on the development of the B/Ca proxy in planktic foraminifera for reconstructing ocean acidification at the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (56 ma). To do this, we are undertaking culture experiments in multiple species to constrain the effects of variable paleo-seawater chemistry on the behavior of the proxy and its response to multiple carbonate chemistry parameters.
