Biography and Research: 

Professor Johnson studies modern cave systems to assess the environmental controls on speleothem geochemistry and improve interpretation of paleoclimate records based on stable isotopes, trace elements and radiocarbon. She utilizes instrumental climate data, paleoclimate data and isotope-enabled climate models to investigate the spatial and temporal patterns of natural climate variability, calibrate paleoclimate proxy data and investigate mechanisms of past climate variability.
