My research spans a variety of topics including understanding paleomagnetism, paleoclimate, and developing new techniques for studying these topics. Specifically, I use magnetic measurements from marine sediments from the North Atlantic, Gulf of Alaska and Sumatra to reconstruct the past geomagnetic field and environmental history from these regions. In addition, I am developing magnetic stratigraphic tools to better constrain sediment core chronologies.
My experiences at the University of Pittsburgh, COAS, and abroad have helped me not only to cultivate my scientific objectives as a researcher, but also a desire to develop better methods for teaching science to the public. At COAS, I am lucky to have the opportunity to participate in many outreach activities, including Suicase Science, and the Salmon Bowl.
Feel free to contact me for information on outreach, or to ask any questions you have about research in the lab!
