Research interests

I reconstruct those Quaternary environmental changes that are mediated by land cover to assess the role of climate, humans and internal system dynamics on Earth surfaces processes and landscape evolution, i.e.

-> Palaeofire regimes using sedimentary charcoal and fire biomarkers (anhydrosugars)

-> Sediment transport and depositional processes using grain size end-member modelling analysis

-> Lake level changes using sedimentological and geomorphological evidence

... based on lacustrine and terrestrial sediment archives

... across spatial and temporal scales

... considering dating and proxy measurement uncertainties
