As a Quaternary geologist and palaeoclimatologist I am working on a variety of climate archives, including speleothems (stalagmites, flowstones), lacustrine sediments, spring carbonates and corals from Europe, the Middle East and Indian Ocean. One primary goal of my research is to construct precisely-dated and highly-resolved time series that provide new insights into climatic and environmental processes over a variety of geologic timescales, ranging from seasonal to glacial/interglacial cycles. It is therefore not surprising that my research interests and experience span a wide range of topics from paleoclimate, geochemistry, hydrology, biology, meteorology to archaeology and climate modelling. Because of the strong interdisciplinary nature of my research, I have developed a rich network of national and international collaborations.
