Co-advised by Dr. Chris Lowery and Dr. Rowan Martindale for PhD. Current research is focused on deep ocean current changes in the southern Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, and the western Atlantic around the Eocene-Oligocene Transition (EOT) using stable isotopes from benthic foraminifera, and determining how these changes may have coincided with development of the North Atlantic Deep Water and benthic extinctions at the EOT.
