Current Research Interests

My research activities are motivated by questions regarding the impact of natural environmental and anthropogenic changes on aquatic systems.  I use microfossils (primarily dinoflagellate cysts, and diatoms) and geochemical tracers preserved in sediments to reconstruct changes in climatic, environmental and oceanographic conditions on time scales spanning from decades to millennia.  I have special interest for proxy development and intercomparison.

Selected research topics of interest:
  • Variability in Arctic sea-ice and primary productivity during glacial-interglacial cycles
  • Response of marine protists to environmental changes
  • Harmful algal blooms, from the tropics to the high latitudes
  • Human settlement and migration in relation with climate fluctuations
