Cenozoic paleontology, paleobotany, analytical geochemistry
During the past 40 years, I've worked on a wide variety of research projects. In recent decades, my primary interest has been Cenozoic paleontology and paleobotany. I am particularly interested in using analytical geochemistry and electron microscopy to study fossilization processes. Track fossils have also been a research interest. I retired in 2014, but remain at W.W.U. as a Research Associate.
