Sedimentary Petrology & Geochemistry
Geography-Geology Building, Room 133

Current Research Interests

Paleoclimatological and paleoenvironmental records contained in carbonate materials, and especially in stalagmites.  This research uses the petrography, mineralogy, carbon isotope geochemistry, oxygen isotope geochemistry, U-Th isotope ratios, and minor element chemistry of stalagmites, other speleothems, and other carbonate materials as proxy records of climate change, and other environmental change, in the past.
