Research Interests:

My main research focuses on an interdisciplinary view of Holocene coral-reef development and the effects of human impacts on coral reefs and coastal systems. Since coming to Oberlin in 1998, I have actively involved undergraduates in my research. If you are interested in gaining experience as a practicing geologist, come by Carnegie 407 (office) or 416 (lab) to inquire about ways to get involved.
