Sloane studies organic geochemical proxies found in eastern African lake sediment cores to reconstruct past variability in precipitation and temperature in this region since the Last Glacial Maximum. She is currently working on generating precipitation records from high-elevation lakes in eastern Africa and comparing these to existing hydroclimate records from this region to better understand the hydroclimate history and atmospheric processes controlling rainfall in eastern Africa.  She also hopes to use her research to understand how precipitation and temperature will change in the future and the impact these changes will have on the ecology, cultural practices, and economy associated with natural environments in eastern Africa.
