|Investigates why the 14C age of marine dissolved organic carbon (DOC) is thousands of years old, despite evidence that most of it is produced in the surface ocean during photosynthesis.|
|Studies how ocean circulation changed in the tropical and subtropical Pacific during the past millennium.|
|Interested in changes in Pacific Ocean circulation and climate during the past millennium; isotopic characterization, sources and cycling of carbon in dissolved and particulate marine organic matter; and origin and cycling of black carbon in the marine environment.|
Expert in the marine carbon cycle, how past changes in climate affect the carbon cycle and water circulation, and how carbon cycles in the deep ocean.
