Quaternary environmental change with a specialism in sea-level studies, associated analytical methodologies and fieldwork.
Quaternary geochronologies, geochemistry and recent sea-level change.
My current research focuses on developing new and refining existing dating methods for late Holocene sea-level reconstructions. As a means of dating carbon-poor salt-marsh sediments we are investigating alternatives to 14C analysis including the use of stable lead isotopes histories, luminescence dating and palaeomagnetic dating.
