Summary

I am the Head of the Economic and Environmental Earth Sciences (EEES) Division and Micropalaeontology Sector Leader within the Earth Sciences Department at the NHM.

I am a micropalaeontologist who speci 1D0A alises in the analysis of Quaternary sedimentary archives in order to reconstruct past environmental conditions. Through the application of diatom and pollen analyses to sedimentary sequences, I am able to reconstruct past sea level and vegetation change respectively. My role at the museum focuses on developing projects based on the museum's large micropalaeontology collections, in order to maximise the academic and commercial potential of these unique resources. In addition, I undertake geoarchaeological consultancy work for the UK's leading archaeology units

In addition to undertaking micropalaeontology research and associated income generation, for the last three years I have led the development and delivery of a NERC Advanced Training Short Course (ATSC) in Quaternary Palaeoecology, in collaboration with fellow experts from across the Museum (see link above), with further funding secured until 2018-2019. Similarly, I teach a module in Quaternary Microfossils on the Royal Holloway Quaternary Science MSc . In addition to such postgraduate teaching, I also supervise MSc and PhD students.
