Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Isotopist, paleoecologist, -climatologist. I apply isotope geochemical techniques to study a variety of topics related to past environments. Current projects deal with (1) Holocene saline water inflows to the Baltic Sea, (2) MIS 3-2 climate and environment in Europe and Wrangel Island, (3) 20th century features in Vestfonna glacier ice, Svalbard.

Teaching in the fields of Geochemistry and Isotope geochemistry practicals, Pleistocene climatology
