Postdoctoral Researcher

My research at Byrd Polar Research Center focuses on using Arctic ice cores to study the history of large-scale atmospheric and oceanic oscillations. I examine ice cores from Greenland and Alaska for linkages between the climate in the Pacific and Atlantic Basins. These cores also have the potential to reconstruct a history of Arctic sea ice extent which will aid in understanding how large-scale circulations will be influenced by the current reduction in sea ice extent.
