Research interests

My PhD research focuses on the reconstruction of the monsoon influence on the tropical Indian ocean. For this purpose I analyse Mg/Ca and stable isotopes of foraminiferal shells in a highly resolved sediment core that covers the past 500 kyrs, with an emphasis on interglacial MIS 11.​

Thesis title: High-resolution reconstruction of monsoon influences in the Indian Ocean, and glacial inception after Marine Isotope Stage 11​
