Research Summary

Mass spectrometry; geoanalytical methods; geochronology; environmental geochemistry; isotope forensics. I use trace elements and heavy isotopes in environmental, geological and biological samples to answer questions related to the ecology of aquatic and terrestrial systems, hydrology of surface and groundwater, mineralogy, paleoclimate, environmental contaminants, biomonitoring, provenance of food and other goods, and forensic science.
