Research interests

-   High-resolution study of ocean/climate changes during the Neogene – in particular the last 1 Million years – to determine the nature, timing, magnitude, and rates of natural climate variability

-   Theoretical and applied (integrated with proxy records) modelling of present-day and past states of circulation and property distribution

-   Theoretical and practical/analytical research on the use of conservative properties and d18O to trace deep-water formation, advection and mixing processes in the modern ocean.

-   Assessment of changes in deep-sea ventilation states and nutrient distribution mechanisms, the interactions with the organic and inorganic carbon cycle, and the impact of ecological responses on proxy records. 

-   Integration of palaeoclimate research with archaeological records.
