Welcome to the Williams Marine Environmental Change (MEC) Lab at the Claremont Colleges!

I run a student-centric research program with external funding from the National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and National Geographic Society. In my research, we develop and interpret records of environmental variability in our oceans from the tropics to the poles. From these records, we work to understand mechanisms driving natural variability in chemical, biological, and physical oceanography, along with the response of the ocean to anthropogenic climate change.
