Research interests

Isotope Geochemistry and Geochronology: to establish timing(s) of orogenic events at high levels of precision accuracy. Using geochronology of single mineral grains as a provenance indicator. Measuring and modeling isotopic ratios as a tracer of sediment provenance, crustal and mantle geological processes.

Orogenic processes and climate: using geochemistry to evaluate the interplay between tectonics and climate on sediment deposition and provenance.
