I use marine sediment cores to study past oceans and climate and am widely published in paleoceanography. I have sailed on eight ocean drilling legs and will sail again in the spring of 2019.
Diversity issues in geoscience are my passion. I co-edited a book on gender equality, helped to start "On To the Future" at the Geological Society of America (GSA) and just completed 5-years as Wesleyan's McNair Program Director
Currently I serve on the GSA governing council, an elected, 4-year position.
