Welcome to the Sibert Lab webpage! Thanks for stopping by!
I am currently a Junior Fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows. I completed my PhD in 2016 at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. I am broadly interested in the evolution, structure, and function of marine ecosystems, and how these ecosystems respond to global change. I use a multi-proxy approach to study how the open ocean ecosystem has changed through time, with a focus on responses to climate and biotic events in Earth’s more recent history, such as global warming and mass extinctions. I specialize in using ichthyoliths, tiny fossil fish teeth and shark scales found in pelagic sediments worldwide, which I then incorporate with myriad other climate and biotic proxies to better understand the ecosystem as a whole.
