  • Research

    • My research interests include Quaternary paleoenvironmental research, biogeography, and geoarchaeology. My students and I obtain sediment cores from lakes and peatlands (fens), and conduct a number of biogeochemical analyses on the sediments. Our laboratory facilities allow us to do pollen and diatom analysis, and to determine magnetic susceptibility, bulk density, organic carbon content, and a number of other physical and chemical characteristics.
