Research Interest


I am an environmental physicist and isotope geochemist interested in climate and biogeochemistry. I use elemental and isotopic analyses (noble gases, U-Th series, cosmogenic and radiogenic isotopes), to unravel processes of climate and environmental change in the oceans and on continents, on timescales ranging from decades to tens of millions of years. My research uses climate archives such as deep-sea sediments and polar ice cores from Antarctica and Greenland, to quantify the climate system’s sensitivity and response to natural variability and anthropogenic perturbations.
