My research deals primarily with the biostratigraphy and paleoecology of Paleogene foraminifera and the relationship to sequence stratigraphy. Most of my work has been conducted in the Gulf Coastal Plain, the Caribbean and the South Pacific. A secondary line of research consists of the geology of frontier basins with an emphasis on southeast Asia.
