Personal profile

Research interests

The focus of my research is subglacial environment and quantifying the chemical weathering rates. Chemical weathering is the dissolution of rocks and minerals by chemical processes and plays a significant role in geochemical cycles that regulate Earth's climate (the silicate-carbonate cycle).

I apply the use of cosmogenic isotopes (meteoric 10Be) to study the chemical weathering rates from post-, pre-, and syn-glacial soil. This will further help in the understanding of global carbon flux over the past glacial-interglacial period.

My broad training skills include soil science, lab-based analytical techniques, biogeochemistry, isotope analysis, earth science processes, and data analysis.
