I am interested in the co-evolution of Earth and the biosphere, in particular in the environmental conditions that led to the origin of life, the invention of particular metabolisms and the rise of complex organisms. I use geochemical tools, including nitrogen, carbon, selenium and sulfur isotopes, combined with sedimentological observations, to characterize biogeochemical cycles in ancient environments and to establish linkages between environmental conditions and biospheric diversity. Another important aspect of my work is the establishment of selenium isotopes as a new proxy for redox and productivity changes in deep time, which includes the development of new analytical techniques and the investigation of the Phanerozoic selenium cycle.
