Welcome to my page! I am a geoscientist who uses the tools of micropaleontology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and low-temperature geochemistry to answer questions about past climates, ocean conditions, and marine biota. I'm interested in exploring the dynamic interplay between ocean-climate change and biotic evolution, reconstructing marine systems in deep time, and working to improve our understanding of how secondary mechanisms influence interpretations drawn from sedimentary records. At heart, I love cooking, being artfully creative, and fossil hunting with my geoscientist partner, our geologist-in-training son, and our dog, Darwin. You can learn more about my past and ongoing research, activities as a NOAA Climate & Global Change Postdoctoral Fellow at Oregon State University, and scientific interests throughout other portions of my page. Feel free to get in touch!
