Description of scientific projects
I am interested in the role of tropical processes in global climate change. We develop new high resolution proxy climate data from stable isotopic composition of tropical trees and corals; forward model proxy climate observations to improve interpretability of such datasets; and develop probabilistic paleoclimate field reconstructions for the late Holocene to identify patterns, mechanisms, and predictability of tropically-mediated hydroclimatic variability and change.
