I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at Tufts University with a broad interest in paleoenvironmental reconstruction, Quaternary climate change and Holocene coastal evolution. My research produces relative sea-level reconstructions from coastal sediment on a variety of spatial (local to global) and temporal (minutes to millennia) scales.

These reconstructions are applied across a range of research areas to identify the patterns and causes of past, present and future sea-level change. Specifically my research aims to;

This paleo perspective helps to inform coastal management in light of changes predicted for the 21st century and beyond.
