Past climate and environments

Our research is focused on past climates and environments on Earth ranging from interannual to million year timescales.  In particular, we aim to understand the interplay between ancient biosphere, atmosphere, and cryosphere over the last 50 million years.  We use a combination of geochemistry, microfossil analyses, numerical models and, of course, field studies, to improve our understanding of the Earth system.
