Current Activities

Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship: Lake Suigetsu and volcanic ash, the key to synchronising palaeoclimate archives. 

This research looks to maximise the tephrochronological potential of the Lake Suigetsu (Honshu, Japan) sedimentary record through the identification of cryptotephra horizons, both in terms of facilitating the synchronisation of this key paleoclimate archive with other important climate records, but also enabling the reconstruction of a more complete record of volcanic history for the region.
