I am currently immersed in the use of geochemical proxies in paleoclimatic reconstructions. My work is focused in a coastal sinkhole in the northern Bahamas. I am currently working on extracting particular biomarkers and measuring carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes for paleo-vegetative and hydrologic reconstruction of the region.
