I am a GCRF Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellow and Proleptic Lecturer at the University of Southampton. I study climate‒biogeochemistry interactions in past, present and future environments and specialise in the geochemical analysis of biomarkers (‘molecular fossils’). Biomarkers are organic compounds derived from a biological source organism and can be preserved in the sedimentary record for millions of years. I have applied a biomarker approach to reconstruct climate and environmental change throughout Earths history. My research brings together extensive multidisciplinary expertise and I work across disciplinary boundaries with environmental scientists, climatologists, ecologists, botanists, and Earth system modellers.
