Expertise & Interests

Overview / specialty        Marine-based proxies for SST and other variables, especially involving planktonic foraminifera, but also other microfossil groups. From the geochemical standpoint, my focus largely centers on planktonic foraminiferal Mg/Ca and d18O.

Topics        Monsoon, Ocean dynamics, Climate dynamics, Proxy development, Extreme events, Human impacts & interactions, Ice dynamics, Warm worlds
Timescales        Anthropocene (last 100 years), Future projection, Holocene, Last millennia, Last glacial cycle
Regions        World ocean, Global
Archives        Ocean sediments, Ice cores/glaciers, Instrumental records
Sector        Academia / Education, Research, Outreach/Communication
Discipline        (Micro)paleontology, (Paleo)climatology, Geochemistry, (Paleo)oceanography
