Introduction
Broadly, I am interested in understanding and tracing how natural and anthropogenic changes are manifested in the environment. Current research uses Pb isotopes in glacial ice to examine and fingerprint historical changes in lead pollution sources. Concurrent work seeks to assess carbonate chemistry conditions on the Oregon coast, as well as determine methods to improve oyster health and resiliency in increasingly corrosive waters.

Article
Emissions from mid-latitude industrial activities (e.g., mining, smelting, coal combustion) result in long-range atmospheric transport of lead (Pb) to the Arctic. While previous measurements of elemental concentrations and Pb isotopic ratios in ice and sediments have been used to suggest potential sources of toxic heavy metal pollution in these reg...
