    Research Interests

    My research interests centre around the reconstruction of late Quaternary environmental change in wetlands and coastal environments.   I am interested in how these systems function, and in feedbacks between different biological groups and the physical environment over a range of time scales (sub-decadal to millennial scale and longer).  Major research foci include i) applications of benthic protozoans (e.g. testate amoebae and foraminifera) and diatoms in biomonitoring and restoration; ii) the use of palaeoecological, palaeolimnological and geochemical approaches for understanding long-term climate and sea-level change; iii) use of quantitative, multi-proxy techniques to aid palaeoenvironmental reconstruction.  

    I am an Adjunct Research Professor, Department of Earth Sciences, Carleton University, Ottawa and a former Director of Research of the Environmental Change Research Cluster, QUB.
