Research interests

My research interest is in the area of Marine Geology, Sedimentology and Geochemistry. I am particularly interested in the transport of terrestrial particles (sediment, organic carbon, pollutants) by episodic sediment flows, called turbidity currents, via submarine canyons.

Research project: Turbidity current processes and products in the fjords of British Columbia (Canada)
