Field of work

I am a Quaternary Geologist with particular interest in sea-level changes, tsunamis, and landslides. Part of my research has taken place at the border between geology and other sciences, for instance geophysics, botany, archaeology, and meteorology – see examples below in the publication list.

I enjoy teaching and are eager to learn our students to write well and become good field geologists.
