I am a senior research associate, facilities manager, and the director of the Environmental Chemistry Laboratory for Environmental Studies and Geological Sciences at Brown University. My research spans topics of global-scale studies of past climates recorded in ocean sediments, local-scale studies of water quality in Narragansett Bay, and studies of chemicals linked to environmental contamination.
I received a BS in Geology with Honors in 1978 from the University of Rhode Island, and a MS in 1983 and a PhD in 1987 in Geological Oceanography from Oregon State University. I came to Brown as a post-doc in 1986 with research interests in Cenozoic climate change with a focus on the evolution of the Indian Ocean monsoon system. After 12 years of grant-funded research projects, I became the manager for the technical and curricular programs in Environmental Science housed in MacMillan Hall. I still maintain an active research program serving as the Director of the Analytical Core for Brown's Superfund Research program and am a co-investigator with Warren Prell coordinating a field program for a study of hypoxia (low oxygen conditions) in Narragansett Bay.
