Main research interests
My research focuses on multiple aspects of biogeochemistry from terrestrial and oceanic C cycle to deep biosphere and paleo-climate. This includes:
- Fluvial transfer of organic carbon from continental reservoirs to the ocean.
- Impact of climate change on the dynamics of terrestrial organic carbon cycling.
- Deep biosphere, role of microbial communities in sedimentary systems.
- Carbon cycling in the Critical Zone.
- Radiocarbon dating (compound specific, ramped pyrolysis/oxidation), new dating techniques.
- Developing paleo-climate proxies, e.g. compound specific stable isotopic measurements.
- Relationships between erosion, tectonics and climate over long timescales.
