Watts Lambert Dietrich

Graduate Assistant

Professional Summary

I am a master's student interested in using geochemical proxies and stable isotopes to reconstruct past climate and improve our understanding of the Earth system. Before coming to UC, I worked as a chemist in the flavor industry and studied airborne disease transmission at the CDC. My current research is focused on determining how diagenesis affects a particular diatom biomarker in lake sediments and whether this biomarker can serve as a proxy for past hydrology.
