RESEARCH

My fundamental research interests derive from discerning the origin and preservation of signals and disturbances in detrital sedimentary systems. Sediment and sedimentary rocks record information on the dynamics of tectonics, climate, and in modern times, anthropogenic activity that can be teased out in a variety of ways. My research focuses on developing interpretive methods and models, rooted in underlying process and generally employing some component of provenance analysis, to better understand how to find and use this information.
