About Sean

I am a geoscientist who uses geologic archives, such as marine sediment cores and corals, to reconstruct past climate and ocean conditions. I am very interested in geoscience education and geoscience literacy, and at CSU, I primarily teach general-interest geology courses as a part of the All University Core Curriculum. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2010 and held a postdoctoral position at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution prior to coming to CSU.
