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.
