Research

Research

Research interests

My research involves the investigation of past climate and environmental change (chiefly during the Jurassic and Cretaceous) and more specifically understanding larger perturbations in the Earth’s physical and biological systems; abrupt climate change during globally warm intervals, extreme events in polar environments and the timing of the onset of northern hemisphere glaciations.My research seeks to address questions such as
  • How warm is warm in a greenhouse world?
  • How reliable are the climatic signals preserved in marine fossils and how these data are used to reconstruct ancient ecosystems?
  • What triggers OAEs and carbon isotope excursions?
  • What are the likely environmental consequences of increased CO2
My tools of choice are typically stable isotopes, with a light sprinkling of sedimentology, palaeontology and fieldwork when possible. Projects principally involving the integration of stratigraphy, sedimentology, petrology and clumped isotopes currently being undertaken with the analysis of material from Deep Sea Drilling Project/Ocean Drilling Project sites; the eastern sub Urals, Siberia, Spitsbergen, Spain, France, Morocco and various locations within the UK.
