Research Interests
My research interests include the changes in sea surface temperature and salinities in the Gulf of Mexico during the early Holocene using Mg/Ca and d18O records generated from planktonic foraminifera. We hope to establish the relationship between the subtropics and high latitude climate variability by comparing our high resolution records with Greenland ice core records.
