I specialize in marine micropaleontology, the study of Earth’s oceans using tiny fossils like foraminifera, diatoms, and fish teeth. I am broadly interested in how life in the oceans responds and adapts to environmental pressures, with a view towards understanding how to best manage our oceans in the present day.
My current work concerns the mechanisms of biomineralization in foraminifera, improving our ability to collect and calibrate proxy data from microfossils, and unraveling the history of Cenozoic climate change events. I am also interested in developing high-throughput techniques for collecting and analyzing microfossil data.
