Life and Environmental Sciences
Bio: 
I am interested with how organisms interact with their environment in both modern and ancient ecosystems. My primary tool is stable isotope analysis, which requires me to also consider biogeochemistry and physiology. Many of my projects focus on sharks and span both modern and paleontological systems. In modern systems, I am interested in the extent of dietary variation within and between individuals as well as developing new diet or trophic indicators based on enamel(oid) chemistry. My paleontological studies use geochemistry to push beyond simple environmental reconstructions and examine ecological concepts and processes.
Research Program: 
Ecogeochemistry, interactions between environmental change and biotic response
