Interests: Global and Local Silicon Cycling, Stable and Radioactive Si Isotopes, Natural Abundance and Isotopic Fractionation of Si, Production and Dissolution of Biogenic Silica, Reverse Weathering Processes, Silica Authigenesis, Pore Water Systems and Sediment Sorption Capacities.


Under the direct supervision of Dr. Daniel Conley, I am a member of the DEVOCEAN project. The major goal of the overall project is to investigate the interactions between biosilicification processes and the environment and how these interactions have evolved through Earth’s history.

 The research will examine the current distribution of biogenic silica in fossil material from deep time together with supporting geochemical and geological proxies. Changes in global silica cycling over long timescales may provide information about the variations in climate over geologic time.
