Research Interests

I am an environmental geoscientist interested in the history of, and interactions among the climate system, the terrestrial hydrosphere and biosphere, and human societies. A common theme in my research relates to how natural climatic variability and human activities influence and are affected by changes to resources on the land surface. I use and develop long-term records of environmental change derived from sedimentary archives, and integrate these records with model output, historical observations, and archaeological data to understand the causes and consequences of environmental change. A significant part of my current research is devoted to improving the predictability of hydroclimatic extremes, and in particular the roles of climate variability and land use change on the occurrence of extreme riverine floods.
