About me

I am a postdoctoral scholar in low temperature geochemistry with Xiaoming Liu. My research combines isotope geochemistry and numerical modeling to investigate variations in modern and ancient biogeochemical cycles. My main research interests are to: 1) investigate the evolution of the chemical weathering rate in the present and in deep time, 2) resolve the geographic provenance of individuals and materials for ecological and paleoecological applications, and 3) reconstruct terrestrial fluvial paleoenvironments in greenhouse periods,. The methods, models, and data products developed in my work apply to a wide variety of fields ranging from hydrology, ecology, and archeology, to stratigraphy, paleoclimatology, geobiology and petroleum exploration. My vision for this research is to build on multidisciplinary approaches, advances in analytical and numerical methods, and open-access repositories to better understand past and present earth surface processes as part of an integrated system.
