Research Activities

I am a palaeoecologist and palaeoclimatologist interested in reconstructing past environments and exploring drivers of change. Understanding the how ecosystems have responded to climate and environmental disturbances in the past can give us insights into how they may respond to future changes. My research is focussed on creating multi-proxy datasets from individual locations to understand how climate, people and disturbances (in particular, fire) drive changes ecosystem dynamics and determining the resilience and recovery ability of ecosystems.
