We study how and why chemical sediments form and lithify, with the goal of better understanding how chemical sedimentary rocks (e.g., carbonates, chert, granular iron formations) record chemical, physical, and biological paleoenvironmental conditions. Our research encompasses lab experiments, modeling, petrography, in situ geochemistry, and fieldwork, spanning modern environments to Precambrian time.
We're looking for postdoc(s)! Please contact Lizzy to discuss project ideas and funding opportunities. We're not accepting new grad students in the Fall 2019 admissions cycle.
