Biographical Info

I am a PhD candidate (August 2015 - present) in the Department of Earth Science, Rice University. I am a sedimentary geochemist, interested in reconstructing past climates of the earth. My current research focusses on changes in marine carbonate preservation in response to super-greenhouse climatic conditions.
