I am generally interested in the applications of biological markers (biomarkers) to address questions in geology and petroleum engineering. My current PhD research focuses on using paleoclimate molecular proxies, such as plant leaf wax biomarkers (GDGT) and stable oxygen and hydrogen isotopes to understand tropical South American hydroclimate and its dynamics since the LGM.
