Research interests

Arctic Ocean Paleoceanography: Reconstruction of (1) sea-ice cover and its variability through Cenozoic times, (2) history of circum-Arctic ice sheets, and (3) long-term climate change through late Mesozoic to Cenozoic times - Approach: sedimentological and organic-geochemical/biomarker proxies
