I am an isotope geochemist interested in human-environment interactions over geologic and historic timescales. My primary interest is understanding ecological changes in the fossil record, as well as assessing environmental changes from anthropogenic land use and climate change over the past century. I use stable and radio-isotopes in fossil teeth, paleosol carbonates, tree rings and sedimentary organic matter to answer these questions.
