My current research at UConn is focused on understanding paleo-weathering proxies. Specifically, I am interested in mineral chemical weathering and how we can use feldspar compositions to understand historical climate. This work focuses on modern-day and quaternary sediments in the Long Island Sound basin in Connecticut.
