Because dating of geological materials is pivotal to understanding the timing, rate, and regional extent of past changes and events, I have a strong interested in geochronology. Assessing the true uncertainties of age models is a major challenge.

I have developed a rating scheme that explicitly recognizes the key factors that influence the geochronological accuracy of sedimentary sequences that do not lend themselves to conventional statistical approaches, and assigns reasonable numerical ratings based on a simple, reproducible, and customizable procedure. "ChronRater" is described in this excerpt and this poster. I welcome your feedback on this approach.

My methodological specialties are:
