My research is focused on understanding the sedimentological, stratigraphical and geochemical responses to climate change in the geological record. I also apply astrochronologic methodologies to improve the geological timescale and understand the rates and timing of ancient episodes of abrupt global environmental change. My interests further extend to understanding the nature of the stratigraphic record and the design and application of numerical methods in stratigraphic analysis.
