Job Title:

Professor in Environmental Change


Expert in reconstructing past environments from freshwater ecosystems using biological, chemical and isotopic indicators.

Research Interests:

I work mainly on assessing human and climatic impacts on some of the world’s most important freshwater ecosystems, including Lake Baikal and the Aral Sea in central Asia, and the Okavango Delta in southern Africa. Key to much of this work is the use biological organisms and stable isotopes to reconstruct past environments.
