My research interests focus on reconstructing past changes in seawater carbonate chemistry, atmospheric CO2 and global climate; the time scales covered by my group curently range from Pleistocene glacial cycles to Paleocene hyperthermals. One of the main tools in this work is the boron isotope proxy for past seawater pH, but my group also validates and applies a range of other proxies for reconstructing past environmental conditions. I am currently also leading a team of experts to organize and vet published records of paleo-atmospheric CO2. Progress on this work can be found on our website paleo-co2.org.

You can find information on my research and specific projects on my personal website.
