    Phys Sci Res Assoc, Geological Sciences

    BioI manage the Stanford Mineral and Microchemical Analysis Facility. My primary responsibilities include developing and testing procedures for measuring major and trace element concentrations in a variety of solid materials, working with Stanford researchers (and external users) to design experiments and collect, interpret, and publish data, and overseeing the long-term development and trajectory of the Mineral and Microchemical Analysis Facility both within the Stanford School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences and in the greater Stanford community.

    Ph.D. Student in Geological and Environmental Sciences

    BioI am a third-year Ph.D. student working with Dr. Steve Graham and the Basin and Petroleum System Modeling (BPSM) group, as well as the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and the New Zealand Institute for Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS Science).

    I currently conduct research on past earth climate, microbiological and thermal activity, geologic deposition via fluvial and marine systems, and tectonic processes including mountain-building and faulting to assess exploration risk and economic viability of oil, gas, and gas hydrate deposits.

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch
    I use stable and radiogenic isotopes to understand Earth system history. These studies examine the link between climate, tectonics, biological, and surface processes. Projects include: 1) examining the terrestrial climate history of the Earth focusing on periods of time in the past that had CO 2-levels similar to the present and to future projections; and 2) addressing how the chemical weathering of the Earth's crust affects both the long- and short-term carbon cycle. Field areas for these studies are in the Cascades, Rocky Mountains, Sierra Nevada, the European Alps, Tibet and the Himalaya and the Southern Alps of New Zealand.

    Teaching
    I teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate level in isotope biogeochemistry, Earth system history, and the relationship between climate, surface processes and tectonics. I also teach a three-week field course each September in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming for sophomores and GES majors. This course covers topics in environmental and geological sciences.
