My research centers on understanding how terrestrial landscapes and organisms respond to past climate change. I primarily use stable isotopic records to study interactions between mammals, vegetation, and climate in past ecosystems. My work includes examination of modern climatic, ecological and geochemical processes to develop analogs for fossil systems. To date, my research has focused on reconstructing Plio-Pleistocene environments from sedimentary and isotopic records preserved in the East African rift. New projects include paleoecological research on Middle Pleistocene sediments in South Africa and mass-dependent Δ17O variation in the sedimentary record and the hydrosphere.
