My research focuses on the study of paleoceanography and palaeoclimatology in both Recent and geological times.
My work includes:
- The use of stable isotopes and other geochemical tools to investigate paleoclimates and ocean history as recorded in deep-sea sediments and accretionary carbonates;
- High-resolution climate and seasonality reconstructions from annually banded records, such as bivalve shells, fish otoliths and cold water corals;
- Research into ocean acidification;
- Marine micropaleontology;
- Radiocarbon and U/Th dating
My role in ARAMACC is as the main supervisor of the WP1 projects based at UniRes Bergen “Variability of Atlantic inflow using sclerochronology: Faroes inflow branch” (with ARAMACC researcher Fabian Bonitz) and “Variability of Atlantic inflow using sclerochronology: northern Norway” (with ARAMACC researcher Tamara Trofimova).
