About me

In my 1-year postdoctoral position here, I am aiming to better constrain the behaviour of the Scandinavian ice sheet after the Last Glacial Maximum. I am integrating varve chronologies with glacio-geomorphological mapping in the southeastern Blekinge and Kalmar areas of Sweden, using both existing varve chronologies and undertaking fieldwork to collect varved sediment cores that can connect previously separate parts of the Swedish Varve Chronology.

My general research interests include: Palaeoclimate, varves, palaeolimnology, and the late-Quaternary.
