Selected projects

  • My research aims at understanding the dynamic interactions between climate and the biosphere, on both short and longer timescales. We study marine, calcifying algae (coccolithophores), using a multi-faceted approach from the fossil record to modern, natural and laboratory environments. Cross-disciplinary collaborations are an important component in this effort.
