Research Interests

My main interest lies in Antarctic paleoclimatology. My work will focus on the reconstruction of sea ice and glacial history. I hope to accomplish this through the sedimentary and biological analyses of sediments collected from offshore Antarctica. The aim of my research is to understand how glaciers have responded over the last 12,000 years to climatic and oceanic variations.
