Thomas A Hewett Professor of Energy Resources Engineering, Emeritus
James Ingle The W. M. Keck Professor of Earth Sciences, Emeritus

Current research interests include the Neogene stratigraphy, paleoceanography, and depositional history of marine basins and continental margins of the Pacific Ocean with a focus on the California borderland and Gulf of California. Other interests involve study of marine diatomaceous sediments, the sedimentary record of the oxygen minimum zone, and application of benthic and planktonic foraminifera to questions surrounding the history of the global ocean and climate change.
