My primary research interests are focused around understanding dynamic Earth systems within the high latitudes. To this end, I utilize several different techniques to investigate and reconstruct processes within the Arctic. I am currently utilizing several different isotopic approaches to quantify and characterize past glacier activity, landscape evolution, climate and how these three have co-evolved through time Baffin Island, Arctic Canada.
