Research the application of malacology to a glaciated late-Pleistocene, early-Holocene paleoenvironmental reconstruction of the Queen Charlotte Island, BC region. Interdisciplinary nature of this research facilitates the integration of geographical, marine geological, biological, and archaeological data and utilizes a geographic information system (GIS-ArcInfo) to spatially correlate marine data sampled throughout the region. Fossil molluscs are sampled from marine cores, underwater grab samples and raised beach sites. These data are then analyzed and compared to modern intertidal molluscan distribution and habitat characteristics and used in conjunction with geologic and geomorphologic evidence to reconstruct paleosea levels and paleoenvironments at sampled localities through time. In addition, because intertidal edible molluscs are an accessible, highly nutritious food source, biomass calculations and paleoenvironmental intertpretations are then used to assess the region's ability to sustain an early coastal migrating human population.

Geophysics. Coastal evolution of the eastern Hudson Bay coast with emphasis on the stratal architecture developed as a result of isostatic emergence and as an analogue for ancient shoreline sedimentary rocks laid down under falling relative sea level (forced regression). Students and I studying a variety of modern delta and strandplain environments in order to understand the variability of such systems and the resultant deposits (use marine geophysical techniques such as sidescan sonar, high-resolution seismic profiling and coring as well as terrestrial methods such as ground-probing radar).
