Current Research

My research has focused on sedimentary records of climate change in marine and lacustrine carbonate environments. These studies have been conducted in St. Croix, The Bahamas, Belize, Hungary, Italy, and Kyrgyzstan. I have been particularly interested in the origin and development of microbialite and stromatolite reefs, as well as the genesis and paleoecology of carbonate hardgrounds.
