Work by my group and collaborators on Earth-based projects include studies of the rotational stability of a convecting Earth and a study of using core-mantle interactions to reconcile implications from past changes in Earth rotation and 20th century global sea-level rise.

I have also worked with graduate student Chi Yan on the effects of a stably-stratified layer at the top of Earth’s core on the geomagnetic octupole field component.
