My main project is documenting the biogeochemical changes that occurred during the Ediacaran-Cambrian transition in the Zavkhan Basin in western Mongolia. To try to understand what was happening during this critical transition, I use a combination of geological mapping, chemostratigraphy, SSF biostratigraphy, U-Pb geochronology, and sequence stratigraphy. I have a second project on the tectonic evolution of the Beck Spring Dolomite in Death Valley, California.
