Research Interests

Analytical/Development of geochemical tools for Paleoceanography:

  • Proxy development in marine carbonates (foraminifera, corals, coralline algae)
  • Development of analytical methods for micro-analyses

Coral biogeochemistry:

  • Biomineralization of corals, with focus on mechanisms of [H+] modulation and response to ocean acidification
  • Frequency and environmental conditions of coral bleaching events during the Holocene
  • High resolution seawater variability using coral geochemical proxies 


  • Common Era research: Arctic ocean acidification, freshwater input and temperature change with the use of coralline algal chemistry
  • Quaternary research: Reconstruction of surface-to-deep seawater pH, nutrient and carbonate ion concentrations using cold-water corals and foraminifera
  • Cenozoic research: Reconstruction of Paleogene atmospheric CO2, climate sensitivity, and carbon cycle dynamics based on boron isotopes in planktonic foraminifera
