Much of my research is focused on problems in understanding Precambrian sedimentary basin evolution via studies of Precambrian rocks and modern sediment analogs. I use field work coupled to a variety of geochemical and isotopic approaches to address problems that include provenance, paleogeographic reconstructions, paleoweathering/paleoclimate, ocean chemistry, and crustal evolution. Within my web space you can find links that navigate to my specific research interests and people doing research with me, representative publications and downloads, and links to courses I teach.
