    Trace element biogeochemistry, isotope geochemistry and paleoceanography.

    Research Interests

    The biogeochemistry of trace elements in the ocean and their application in paleoceanography;

    North Pacific paleoceanography, in particular deep water circulation, in the last glacial cycle;

    Plio-Pleistocene climate transition and the onset of Northern Hemisphere Glaciation.

    Current Research

    1. The diagenetic and oceanic cycles of Nd and its isotopes.

    2. The application of authigenic εNd as a circulation tracer in paleoceanography, with case studies in the Gulf of Alaska.

    3. The biogeochemistry of redox sensitive metals in sediments, with paleoceanographic applications in the Gulf of Alaska.
