CURRENT RESEARCH DIRECTIONS
My current research focuses primarily on the causes of abrupt climate change, in particular the rapid climate changes associated with the end of the last ice age in both the Northern (Maine and Florida, USA, and Ireland) and Southern (New Zealand and Patagonia) Hemispheres. I work specifically on environmental reconstruction using biological proxies in lake sediment and peat in cooperation with glacial geologists, biologists, limnologists, and archaeologists. My research includes methodological advances for climatic interpretation of biological proxies including transfer functions for New Zealand and Patagonian chironomids, and Northeastern North American pollen, plant macrofossils, and carbonate.
