About Sarah's Work

Sarah is an ocean and climate scientist trained to think about how abrupt climate change impacts physical and biological systems. She received doctoral training in paleoceanography, climate change, geochemistry and marine ecology from the University of California at Davis. She is deeply interested in how ocean systems will be disrupted and reorganized by anthropogenic climate change. In particular, Sarah investigates past events of abrupt climate change to provide informative windows into the capacity for global-scale events to disrupt regional ecology. Sarah is committed to improving communication between climate scientists, policy makers and citizens. Climate and environmental scientists are tasked with providing the analytical and decision-making tools for science-based policy. She looks forward to bringing science to constituents, decision makers and the public sector to solve the problems of the future.
