Modern depositional environments are a primary focus of my current research. From freshwater to hypersaline environments, I work to better understand the variation of geochemical and textural signatures of carbonates, and the environmental condition which lead to their primary features.
A second research focus utilizes an experimental approach to track diagenesis of carbonate archives over various alteration conditions. This allows for a detailed evaluation of the effect of one diagenetic factor (temperature, fluid chemistry, etc) on the reaction of the carbonate phase.
For further information on these two research theme, see the additional pages regarding research, or the associate publications on my CV.
