Research interestsUnderstanding natural climate variability is critical to predicting how Earth’s climate will continue to respond to rising levels of greenhouse gases. Ice cores capture highly detailed records of past climate in both the bubbles of ancient air and the chemical signals preserved within the ice. By studying these records we can learn about the mechanisms involved in driving and propagating past climatic change. I am particularly interested in the role Arctic sea ice may played in a series of abrupt climate changes during the Last Glacial Period.
