I am interested in refining the cosmogenic nuclide dating method, with focus on production rate calibrations of the in-situ nuclides Cl-36 and C-14. Currently, I am setting up the Cl-36 extraction procedure from silicates at LDEO and I am running the in-situ C-14 lab. My research is also centered on Holocene mountain glacier fluctuations in the European Alps using 10Be and in-situ C-14. In addition, I am involved in projects in Antarctica, Western USA, New Zealand and Patagonia.
