Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

My research focuses on the chemical and physical processes occurring beneath the world’s large ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. I seek to understand the connections between the glacial processes, resultant geochemical effects, and feedbacks to global geochemical cycling. Methods employed include hydrochemistry, mineralogy, stable isotopes and cosmogenic isotopes.
