About me

I am a deep-time palaeoecologist who uses the fossil pollen record to reconstruct ancient ecosystems. I enjoy working with multi-disciplinary teams, combining palynological data with palaeobotanical, faunal and climate records in order to best understand past Earth dynamics. This research is important for understanding current and future global climate changes, as well as being useful in biostratigraphic correlation, dating, and geothermal maturation for the fossil fuels industry.

At DEEP I am working with Prof. Catarina Rydin to reconstruct past pollination processes in gymnosperms, and investigate the origins of insect pollination. I also have ongoing projects in unravelling the role and behaviour of the Asian Monsoon system (the MAGIC project), and vegetation collapse over the most severe biodiversity crisis in Earth's history, the Permo–Triassic mass extinction.
