The overarching theme of my research is the use of sedimentary, microfossil and geochemical indicators to produce and synthesize records of present and past storms, floods and sea levels, and their extent of geological and ecological impacts. These records provide means to assess future risk, reveal the spatial and temporal variability of coastal inundation and decipher the relationship of these events to global climatic changes. My current research interests fall into, but are not limited to, the following three broad areas of investigation: (1) local to global drivers of relative sea-level change to improve future projections; (2) the impact of extreme events (storms, floods, tsunamis) on coastal systems and evolution, and (3) quantifying processes of coastal change.
