Research Interests:

Dr. Hoffmann studies the history of the oceans and climate, using the chemistry of geological archives such as deep sea sediments and tropical cave stalagmites. Her research focuses on uranium-series radioisotopes in marine sediments from the Arctic and Atlantic, to investigate past deep ocean circulation, particle scavenging dynamics, and sedimentation processes. She also measures stable isotopes from cave deposits in Borneo, located within the Western Pacific Warm Pool, to study the history of El Nino-Southern Oscillation variability.
