I am a Geochemist specialising in paleoclimate reconstructions using trace metal and stable isotope proxies in biogenic carbonate (foraminifera).

I am interested in the application of geochemical proxies coupled with sedimentology to reconstruct environmental changes in the Amundsen Sea. In particular to reconstruct changes in water mass/ocean temperature, and then link these changes to ocean-ice-sheet interaction.
