November 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm MST

FASB 295 and online.

My research centers on reconstructing past changes in sea level to better understand the dynamics of ice sheet and sea level response to changes in climate, particularly during warm climates or rapid climate transitions.  I will present an overview of our evolving understanding of sea level and ice sheet volume during the Last Interglacial, ~125,000 years ago, through work that my research group has conducted at numerous sites around the globe.  This interdisciplinary work relies on using fossil corals to reconstruct the past position of sea level through field work that is integrated with sedimentology, isotope geochemistry, reef paleobiology, and geophysical modeling.  In addition to sharing some of this emerging science, my talk will also explore the ways in which my research and my experience as a scientist is impacted by and/or has ramifications for several intersecting issues, including politics, race, and gender.
