I am a terrestrial paleoclimatologist and use the geochemical proxies of stalagmite (calcite deposits in caves) to discern periods of past climate change. I received my undergraduate from the University of California, Irvine. Following which, I received my MS and PhD from the University of Texas, Austin. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Brown University. For my postdoctoral research, I am interested in extreme climates events such as flooding events through the Holocene in the tropics (Colombia and Philippines). I have the great pleasure and feel very fortunate that I get to explore caves in remote parts of the world. My primary responsibilities on the Pal(a)eoPERCS committee is to keep the Pal(a)eoPERCS website updated.
