My research program primarily addresses three topics: the
mechanisms of climate change,
the controls on the
global carbon cycle, and the
measurement of geologic time. These subjects are
fundamentally interrelated, as there are linkages between climate and the carbon cycle, while the
establishment of reliable chronologies is essential for evaluating climate forcing mechanisms and determining
rates of climatic and biogeochemical change in Earth's past. My interdisciplinary approach to investigating
these topics integrates data (primarily geochemical, sedimentologic and stratigraphic) with novel modeling
and statistical techniques, to unravel the history of the climate system, oceans and geosphere.
While I am involved in a wide range of geoscience research, at present I am especially
active in the development of quantitative approaches for the construction
and evaluation of astronomical time scales, the intercalibration of astrochronologic and radioisotopic
data, and the evaluation of Earth System responses to orbital-insolation changes.
