Research Overview:

Aqueous fluids provide us with a geochemical window to observe the fundamental mechanisms that have driven dynamic processes in crustal, surficial, and atmospheric reservoirs both in the present and in the distant past. My research has focused on determining the elemental and isotopic composition of fluids and looking at how they are coupled with global processes such as climate change, weathering, tectonics, and marine carbon cycling. Specific areas of research interest are as follows:

Cycling of carbon and other elements in marine continental margins:
Halogens in polar regions:
Coalbed Methane Systems:
Geothermal and volcanic studies:
Dispersal of Anthropogenic Isotopes:
