Dry Valleys, Antarctica

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Oregon State University working on a number of different projects that involve paleoclimatology, glacial geology, geochemistry, and both numerical and statistical modeling.  Presently, I am developing a carbon dioxide record from WAIS Divide, Antarctica for the last 70,000 years, which will shed new light on the relationship between past climate changes and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
My professional interests span a broad range of geological and climatological questions that typically encompass the last 100,000 years.  I consider myself an Earth Scientist, which is reflected in my research interests and education in geology, oceanography, and mathematics.  Part of the pleasure I receive from my research comes from working on new approaches to long standing problems in glacial geology and paleoclimatology, the ability to split my time between the lab and field, and working with a number of different people and friends who share similar professional interests, but who approach the scientific questions much differently.  If you have any question about my research, please contact me.
