I am a PhD student working under the guidance of Aaron Putnam and George Denton. My research involves reconstructing past glacier chronologies and climate variability using 10Be surface-exposure dating techniques. My current project is a comparison of the timing and structure of the Last Glacial Maximum and Termination in Northern and Southern Hemisphere mid-latitudes using fluctuations of mountain glaciers. I am also interested in the roles played by changing oceanic and atmospheric circulations in the climate system. Field areas include: Eastern Tibetan Plateau; Mongolian Altai Mountains; Southern Alps, New Zealand; Northern Andes, Peru; Dry Valleys, Antarctica.
