Research Interests

  • Cretaceous planktonic foraminifera taxonomy, biostratigraphy and biozonation.
  • Evolutionary trends in Cretaceous and Paleogene planktonic foraminifera and biological response to short and long term paleoceanographic changes.
  • Foraminiferal stable isotope paleoecology and species depth ranking during the Cretaceous.
  • Reconstruction of Cretaceous ocean paleotemperature through stable isotopes on foraminifera to document the global climatic warming and cooling transitions from low to southern high latitudes.
  • Cretaceous Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs).
