I am a paleoceanographer/marine geologist who
studies the history and causes of climate change in the Earth's past. By the time I was eight I wanted to be an
oceanographer. As a college freshman I discovered the field of paleoclimatology. In the summer of 2011 I arrived at Lamont, returning to
the same labs I left from with a Ph.D. in 1989. It's great to be back at this special place.

If you have difficulty viewing any part of this web site or have questions
about any data or papers, please let me know.
If you are interested in pursuing research in paleoclimatology don't hesitate to contact me as I am looking for exceptional
students and post-docs with mutual interests. LDEO holds an annual post-doc competition (link) and also has one of the top
graduate programs in Paleoclimatology/Geochemistry in the country (link).
Please also consider applying for the new Provost's Postdoctoral Research Scientist/Scholar Program that aims to recruit outstanding scholars from historically underrepresented groups.
