Members of my laboratory group utilize the geochemistry of microfossils and corals to determine rates and magnitude of climate change, the response and adaptation of species to environmental change, the instability of methane hydrates and the impact of ocean acidification on marine ecosystems.  Stable isotopes (d18O,d13C, d15N), trace elements (Mg/Ca, Sr/Ca), radiocarbon, and foraminiferal species assemblages are used as proxies for temperature and geochemical changes.
