Clay Tabor

Assistant Professor

I am interested in improving links between geochemistry and modern climate science. I am currently performing simulations of the impact winter at Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary that killed off the dinosaurs, the weather events that shaped western North America hydroclimate during the last deglaciation, and the South American monsoon during the warm Miocene. I actively collaborates with atmospheric chemists, geochemists, and geologists.
