Research interests

My interest is in how climate and the marine ecosystem influence coastal vegetation of the Falkland Islands. Seabird guano, the vehicle of marine-derived nutrients, is deposited in coastal vegetation called tussac grass. Tussac grasses are breeding grounds of some of the world's most important seabird rookeries (penguins!) and marine mammals (sea lions!!).  I will use sediment and peat cores to reconstruct how seabirds and tussac grass fluctuated in the past during abrupt climate events.
