Dr. Quinn is a Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences and the Director of the Institute for Geophysics. He teaches classes in Geoclimatology, Marine Geology, and Paleoceanography.

Dr. Quinn's research interests focus on paleoclimate and paleoceanography. Specifically he uses the geochemistry of coral reefs, marine sediments and stalagmites to investigate climate variability in the geologic record. Most recently he and his students have investigated modern and Holocene and Quaternary climate in the western Pacific Ocean, tropical Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.

Dr. Quinn supervises the Analytical Laboratory for Paleoclimate Studies (ALPS). This facility currently houses two stable isotope ratio mass spectrometers with the capabilities to measure various light stable isotopes in carbonates, waters and organic matter. The lab also contains an inductively coupled plasma-spectrometer (ICP), wet chemistry facilities, student space and coral and stalagmite sampling facilities.
