I am working with Prof. Stephen Hesselbo, Dr. Clare Belcher and Dr. Kate Littler, studying Jurassic sediments of Poland in order to understand the palaeoenvironments in which they were deposited. Research will focus on Lower Jurassic terrestrial sediments recovered from boreholes located around the country. Analysis of carbon-isotopes, charcoal samples and palynological samples will be used to generate proxy data for palaeoenvironmental changes throughout the Lower Jurassic.

Research interests

Palaeoenvironments, geochemistry, carbon isotopes, palynology
