My research involves the stratigraphic record of Earth history, with a focus on astronomical signals in the paleoclimate record. I have contributed to the development of the Astronomical Time Scale, a geo-chronometer recently incorporated into the International Geologic Time Scale for the Cenozoic and Mesozoic Eras, with future extension to the Paleozoic Era.

My role in the Open Earth Systems Project is to identify, collect, analyze, and assimilate geological data pertaining to major Earth system processes that have operated throughout Earth history. The data will be used to test, validate, and tune Open Earth System models.
