CV

 

 

My research interest involves application of marine palaeopalynology to reconstruct palaeoclimate and palaeoenvironmental conditions in the Arctic region from the Late Cretaceous up to present times. Currently I work on the Last Interglacial (~129 ka). This part of the geological history is relevant for understanding future climate but its ocean and climate dynamics are not well understood. A dinoflagellate cyst study based on 129 samples from the subpolar North Atlantic ODP sites 984 and 986 for the interval 132.45–108.9 ka is in progress.
