Biogeochemical Controls on Paleoproductivity Proxies: The Antarctic Sea Ice Environment

I am a 3rd year PhD student working in the Global Change Group within the School of GeoSciences. My research is a blend of both modern biogeochemical cycles and paleoceanography in the near shore Antarctic sea ice environment. My aim is to better understand the mechanisms controlling formation of sedimentary paleo-proxy signatures, that are used to reconstruct past changes in the earth's oceanic regimes.

Research Interests: Marine biogeochemical cycles (C, N, Ba), application of stable isotopes and trace elements to problems in marine biogeochemistry and paleoceanography, experimental ecotoxicology and environmental fate studies.
