Specialties
  • marine sedimentation processes in arctic waters
  • high latitude deltas
  • marine stratigraphy with special reference to Arctic paleoclimate and paleomonsoons
Research Overview
My research interests include lithological and chemical facies changes in modern sediments of the Arctic and Tropical deltas and the subarctic fjords, Holocene sedimentation, Pleistocene history of the Arctic Ocean, Bering Basin and paleomonsoons. Additional interests have been clay mineralogy, carbon and oxygen isotope stratigraphy, trace metal and radionuclide geochemistry of arctic marine sediments. I have also collaborated with biologists on benthic ecoysystem.
Current Research Projects
  • Historical changes in trace metal and hydrocarbon contaminants on the inner shelf, Beaufort Sea: Prior and subsequent to petroleum-related industrial developments (MMS-CMI)
