Job Title:

Head of the Department of Geography and Professor of Quaternary Science


Danielle is a vertebrate palaeontologist and specialist in Quaternary mammals. Her research focuses on the fossil mammal record from the last 2.5 million years, combining biostratigraphy (the use of fossil assemblages as a dating tool), palaeoecology, taphonomy and the interaction of past mammalian communities with early humans. The framework she has developed now forms a part of the established basis for our understanding of glacial-interglacial mammalian faunal turnover in NW Europe and is widely employed by stratigraphers, palaeontologists, geochronologists and archaeologists. She maintains a strong commitment to public science communication. She is also an active fieldworker, currently leading investigations into a number of important new palaeontological sites in Britain, especially related to investigations of mammalian responses to abrupt climate change over the last 50,000 years.
