Dissolved Noble Gas Geochemistry

I'm a geoscientist interested in noble gases as quantitative tracers of physical processes in & between the atmosphere, ocean, hydrosphere, and solid earth.

Currently, I am a doctoral candidate at Scripps Institution of Oceanography studying dissolved noble gas isotopes in paleogroundwater from Southern California and in seawater from the deep North Pacific as tracers of past hydroclimate change and air-sea gas exchange, respectively. I'll be heading to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as a postdoctoral scholar in Fall 2019.

Whether you're interested in collaborating scientifically or you've accidentally stumbled upon this site (e.g. by googling "dissolved gases in seltzer water") but have thoughts about He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, or Rn, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
