My research interests are in paleoceanography and paleoclimate, in particular climate-related changes in ocean circulation and in marine ecosystems on various timescales. My specific interests include understanding (1) the role of the tropics in past climate change, (2) how ocean chemistry is coupled to climate on Earth and influences biological productivity, and (3) what is truly recorded by sedimentary proxies.
