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. For prospective graduate students interested in applying for 2020 admission, I am particularly interested in finding people who want to study biogeochemistry using a combination of both modern and ancient environments.
