I am a paleolimnologist who assesses past environmental change in lakes due to both natural climate variability and anthropogenic forcings. My research interests include assessing pre-industrial human impact on landscapes, characterizing the range of natural hydroclimate variability, and looking at the impact of climatic change on past societies. I use a multi-proxy approach including sedimentology and stratigraphy, stable isotopes of authigenic carbonate minerals and organic matter, and trace element geochemistry. The page below has links to more information about specific research projects. If you are interested in working with me on any of the below projects, please send me an e-mail.
