Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on reconstructing relative sea level and environmental change on Holocene timescales. I work in a variety of environments, including tidal marshes, isolation basins, lakes, peatlands, raised beaches, and use a combination of sedimentology, microfossil (diatom) and geochronological methods for reconstructing past environments. Currently I am working on a range of research projects across the world, tied together by the methodological approach of using diatom analysis. These include reconstruction of great earthquake and tsunami history in south-central Chile, postglacial relative sea-level change in Arctic Russia, and reconstructing past human impacts on neotropical landscapes including the Brazilian savannah and Amazonia.
