About:
Ph.D.: Geophysical Sciences (University of Chicago) 1978 
B.A.: Chemistry (University of California, San Diego) 1969  

Research Interests: Environmental geochemistry, especially in interactions between the terrestrial biosphere and the environment, and possible regulation of the environment by the biosphere. Climate change. Use of the Internet and the World Wide Web as an educational tool

 

Research centers on critical intervals in the Cenozoic history, such as the Eocene-Oligocene transition from the Greenhouse to the Icehouse world, Middle Miocene Climatic Optimum, and the first opening of the Bering Strait. These changes produced a series of profound changes in the high-latitude biota, including pulses of diversification and extinction

Current research is primarily focused on the biodiversity, paleogeography, and isotopic record of paleoclimates in the poorly studied areas of the northern Pacific
(Alaska and Kamchatka).
