I am a field oriented marine geologist trying to understand sediment transport processes in response to great earthquakes and tsunamis, changes in climate and sea level through time, and the impact of storms and pollution on our local coasts and estuaries. We work in teams and use different research vessels and tools depending on the water depth and magnitude of the problem we are trying to solve. Lithologic, geochemical, and physical characteristics of the seafloor and subsurface sediments are documented using many types of analyses. Our research provides great learning experiences to both graduate and undergraduate students.
