My research focuses on solving geological problems with biological information and proxies. My background is in terrestrial palynology, I use pollen and spore data to reconstruct past vegetation and as input for paleoclimatological estimates. I search for integration of techniques and concepts across different fields of application, in paleoclimate research, environmental ‘fingerprinting’, and geological model building.
