Daniel E. Ibarra
Graduate Student, Stanford University

Welcome to my website! 
I am a graduate student at Stanford University in C. Page Chamberlain's Terrestrial Paleoclimate research group and previously completed my M.S. in 
Kate Maher's Environmental Isotope Geochemistry research group
 in 2013. 

I am an isotope geochemist applying process-based models to geochemical datasets that reveal information about Earth's past climate and hydrology. My primary interests are terrestrial paleoclimate/paleohydrology, weathering, isotope geochemistry, Earth history, lakes, and climate models. For my Ph.D. I am using modern datasets from lakes, arid soils and catchments/rivers to test and develop geochemical and reactive transport equations that describe the terrestrial hydrosphere. In doing so I hope to develop modeling frameworks for interpreting geochemical and isotopic measurements of terrestrial sediments to infer changes in Earth's past climate and weathering regimes.
