The stable isotopes of water are critical tracers of both modern and past hydroclimate regimes. Current research activities include: measurement and interpretation of triple oxygen isotopes in modern precipitation, developing paleo-hydroclimate records using the hydrogen isotopic composition of leaf waxes, and synthesis of recent literature towards improved models of precipitation-to-leaf wax isotopic differences.

My research focuses on exploring Quaternary changes in tropical South American climate and ecosystems via organic geochemical proxies. Specifically, I use the hydrogen isotopic composition of plant wax biomarkers preserved in lacustrine sedimentary archives to reconstruct long-term climate changes in the Brazilian Amazon and Colombian Andes.
