Ph.D., University of Pittsburgh
David joined the department in 2019. He is an isotope geochemist and sedimentologist who studies past environmental change caused by both natural climate variability and anthropogenic forcings. His current research seeks to understand the biogeochemical consequences of forest fires in the Rocky Mountains, past hydroclimate variability in the Midwestern U.S., and the geochemical legacy of copper mining in the Upper Great Lakes. He combines field and laboratory work to document past environmental change using lake sediment cores and other terrestrial deposits, such as glacial erratics and peat bogs.
