Research Interests

I am a geoscientist interested in the history of, and interactions among, the climate system, the terrestrial hydrosphere and biosphere, and human societies.Sedimentary archives – and in particular the myriad geochemical and biological remains preserved within them – provide an unparalleled view of environmental change through time. I integrate these long-term records of environmental change with model output, historical observations, and archaeological data using statistical and geospatial analysis to understand the fundamental processes that shape environmental systems.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.
