Our current Earth environments result from a delicate balance of triggers and interactions among the biosphere, atmosphere, oceans and solid Earth spanning billions of years. Disentangling these interactions can elucidate the history of Earth and foster insights into uniqueness of the Earth system. My research aims and projects stem from two driving questions:
1. Earth Dynamics: How have Earth's dynamics varied through its history?
2. Earth Environments: What are the tempos and triggers of fundamental changes in global and local marine oxygen?
