Current Role at StanfordI manage the Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry Laboratory in the Mitchell Building, part of the Environmental Measurements Facility 2 (EMF2) at Stanford's School of Earth Sciences. The lab houses 8 analyzer systems interfaced with 5 mass spectrometers which are used for high-precision stable isotope measurements of a wide variety of materials from terrestrial as well as marine environments. My role there is to ensure smooth operation of the instrumentation, to closely monitor the quality of the generated data, and to work with students and researchers to optimize existing or develop new methods for both sample preparation and analysis.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on the origins and early evolution of macroscopic animal life and the changes to both the geosphere and biosphere during the Neoproterozoic to Paleozoic transition; specifically the Ediacaran Period (635-541 Ma). Due to the paucity of fossil evidence left by Earth’s earliest animals in deep time, I look to incorporate paleo- ecological, geochemical, and database analyses with studies of extant animal physiology to better understand the Ediacaran biostratigraphic record.
