Research Interests

Cuba, located at the intersection of three major oceanographic bodies, provides a unique opportunity to study how differences in physiochemical ocean properties affect faunal assemblage, carbonate platform geometry, factory type, facies distribution, porosity, and permeability. My research utilizes a quantitative approach to study the processes that govern carbonate sedimentation today, and will apply this knowledge of a modern analogue to more effectively predict the properties of deposits from the past and accurately interpret paleoenvironmental conditions.
