Professor & Director of Environmental Science

I am a rift basin sedimentologist who studies siliciclastic and volcaniclastic deposits preserved in lacustrine and lake-margin settings in arid and/or semi-arid regions. My research combines sedimentology, stratigraphy, paleosol geochemistry, and stable isotope geochemistry in order to reconstruct paleoenvironmental and paleoecological conditions of fossil sites in Africa and the US.
