PhD, Geological Sciences, University of Colorado – 2003
My interests lie in the broad field of Quaternary geology and global climate change. I study glacial settings to better understand ice sheet processes, glacial landscape evolution and past glacier fluctuations. I also study paleoenvironments recorded in Holocene and Pleistocene lake sediments to better understand paleoclimate, which provides a template for modern global change.
Please see the Paleoclimate Lab for a list of current students.
