About the Research Group:
Dr. Sheldon’s research group studies paleoclimatology, global change, and biosphere-environment interactions. The Continental Environments Research Group investigates linkages between climate, environment, and biogeochemistry of terrestrial and shallow marine environments at a variety of spatial and temporal scales using whole rock geochemistry, light stable isotopes, and modeling. Our group is also committed to principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion and believe firmly that science is for everyone and has a role to play in social change.
I am always interested in hearing from prospective undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral researchers. However, I am not recruiting graduate students for 2023-2024 admission, but will consider new undergraduate and post-doctoral researchers who want to study interactions between Earth’s past climates and the biosphere .
