My interest lies in glacial landscapes and their use in reconstructing glacial history and paleoclimate.  Specifically, I am interested in what drives continental ice sheet fluctuations, and how this is expressed in the geologic record.  My research is currently focused on the former Laurentide Ice Sheet, and the chronology of its southern margin (modern central North America).
