Clay Tabor

Assistant Professor

By researching Earth’s past, I aim to advance our understanding of how the earth system responds to various forcings and assess the ability of models to simulate past, present, and future climate conditions. My research centers on three themes: 1) glacial cycles and sea level change, 2) water isotopologues and regional hydroclimate, and 3) Cretaceous climate and the end-Cretaceous mass extinction. I actively collaborates with atmospheric chemists, geochemists, and geologists.
