I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Geology and Geophysics at Yale University. I am interested in Hadean and Archean crustal production and preservation, the geochemical record and tempo of the rise of atmospheric oxygen, and analytical technique development in radiogenic and stable isotope geoscience. At Yale, I am collaborating with Prof. Alan Rooney to apply the Re-Os geochronometer to refine temporal constraints and evaluate the nature of continental weathering during the Paleoproterozoic Lomagundi-Jatuli carbon isotope excursion.
23-25 Apr 2018: I’ll be presenting a poster, “Dynamics of the Lomagundi-Jatuli Carbon Isotope Excursion and Implications for Early Life,” at my first Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life (SCOL) Annual Meeting in NYC. I’m looking forward to meeting the other SCOL investigators!
15 Dec 2017: I have been selected to receive a Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life Postdoctoral Fellowship starting in April 2018!
12 Dec 2017: Please come and check out my presentation at AGU today; 9:45 AM, V21B-08: Coupled Fe and multiple-S isotope systematics of pyrite and evidence of increasing atmospheric oxygen in ~2.5 Ga sediments of the Kaapvaal Craton.
10 Nov 2017: Newest paper, “Small volume Lu-Hf and U-Pb isotope determination of complex zircons by solution and laser ablation MC-ICP-MS” with collaborator, Matt Horstwood, is finally available online! Please click here for free access through Feb. 07 2018.
Please contact me if you have any questions about my research.
