Areas Of Expertise

  • Palaeoclimatology
  • Palaeolimnology
  • Tropical Palaeoenvironments
  • Stable Isotopes; long-term changes in the carbon cycle in the tropics.

Career Highlights

  • Our research focuses on regions especially sensitive to environmental change such as high-latitude, alpine and fire-prone) and those with sparse environmental archives (tropics) to reduce uncertainty in modelled future-change scenarios and advance understanding of the Earth system.

    Leader, Swansea Biochar Research Team

    Our group aims: constructing a global model of the potential for reducing atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases by producing biochar sustainably; providing assistance to a recycling company that hopes to establish a pyrolysis plant in South Wales; and conducting a pilot study into the physical and chemical changes that take place through time as biochar is weathered within the soil.
