Field of Research and Professional Interest [Present Research Activities]:

All the research activities listed below have a common aim: to obtain information of relevance for the reconstruction of past marine and continental environments of importance for understanding global and regional climatic variability

  • Quaternary palaeoceanography of the Australian region based on deep-sea cores and by principally using microfossils and their chemical composition, and many other proxies
  • Cainozoic palaeoenvironments, involving sedimentology, hydrology, stratigraphy, geochemistry and palaeoecology of lacustrine deposits and microfossils
  • fingerprinting airborne dust in Australia [comprising geochemists, sedimentologists, meteorologists and microbiologists from Australia, Holland  and Germany]
  • trace-element and isotope geochemistry of biogenic carbonates
  • marine and non-marine micropalaeontology applied to palaeoenvironmental reconstructions using the fossils and their chemical composition
  • continuation of work on non-marine ostracods (taxonomy, ecology, palaeoecology).

Research Experience:

- Quaternary marine record of the Australian region, based on deep-sea cores (palaeoecology and geochemistry of biogenic carbonates, aeolian dust, and X-ray mineralogy) and of continental environments based on lake deposits
