Evan is a Ph.D. student at VIMS studying sediment and organic carbon accumulation in the offshore Ayeyarwady Delta, Myanmar. Her dissertation research aims to further understand terrestrial organic carbon processing and burial within this globally significant delta system. In her work, she uses a variety of geochemical tools including stable isotope analysis, 210Pb geochronology, compound specific radiocarbon analysis (CSRA), and ramped pyrolysis/oxidation (RPO) to determine variations in terrestrial organic carbon perservation on the continental shelf over the Holocene.
