Lecturer in the Department of Earth System Science My research has been in reconstructing what the climate was like in the past to understand more about how and why our climate varies and to test how good our climate models are. I’m also interested in how people learn about earth system science and environmental issues. About me

First assignment (ungraded) It is helpful for me to know a bit more about the students in my class. Please send me an e-mail by the next lecture or hand in written answers to the following: 1. Name 2. Is this the first ESS class you have taken? If not which others have you taken? 3. Why are you taking this class? If it is for a GE class, why this one rather than chemistry/biology/physics etc.? (Be honest!) 4. Tell me at least one thing you would like to learn more about in this class or what you hope to get from this class. 5. Tell me about your experiences of the cryosphere are you are skier, have you travelled to mountain glaciers or the poles, have you never experienced snow/ice?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
