Recent human activity has committed us to major climatic and environmental changes in the not-so-distant future. To better prepare for, and adapt these changes, we must better understand the complex details of our climate and earth systems.

My research primarily aims to use natural records of past climate variability to inform our understanding of climate dynamics. I study natural climate variability in places ranging from the tropics to the arctic, on timescales ranging years to millennia.
