How does New Zealand dust impact the atmosphere and ocean? This video explains the motivation for a 2021 study that characterizes the geochemistry of New Zealand sediments in order to trace the impact of dust in the Southern Hemisphere. Thanks to the National Science Foundation for supporting this research through a postdoctoral fellowship (OPP - 1204050)!
Colby published this profile of my work in Fall 2018. Check out the full article here.
In May 2018 I had the pleasure of returning to UMaine's Climate Change Institute to give the invited alumni lecture at the annual Borns Symposium. In this half-hour presentation, I share some recent results from my work in the northeastern Pacific region. (The video focus is blurry initially, but it improves several minutes into the recording.)

I recently spoke with Wallace Chapman of Radio New Zealand about the potential role of NZ dust in fertilizing the Southern Ocean. Here's a link to our conversation.
I recently came across this blog post from 2008, in which I describe camp life and science at the WAIS Divide deep field camp in Antarctica.
This article I wrote, published by The Guardian, describes how scientists use ice cores to reconstruct past climate variability
This article, published by The Bangor Daily News, describes my PhD research melting the WAIS Divide ice core
This article announced my postdoctoral fellowship award from the National Science Foundation in 2012
Here is a photo essay and short article on my 2014 field season in New Zealand. And another article, written by Laura Poppick of LiveScience, can be found here.
