About

My research focus is to understand past changes in the Earth’s climate and environment using crustose coralline algae as a proxy archive. I examine algal skeletons obtained from Subarctic regions of the North Pacific and North Atlantic Oceans using a combination of geochemical techniques, increment analyses, microscopic mapping, and micro-CT scanning in order to better understand past changes in Arctic sea-ice extent, sea surface temperature, salinity, and ocean acidification.
