Research Summary

My research interests cover a wide range of topics within global biogeochemical cycles, with a focus upon palaeoenvironmental science. My particular interests include radiocarbon (14C) dynamics within marine and terrestrial systems over extended timescales, and the influence of production mechanisms and subsequent environmental conditions upon cycling of ‘Black Carbon’ in natural environments. My work utilizes a wide range of techniques including AMS, NMR, FTIR spectroscopy and stable isotopic analysis. Current projects include the application of pyrolysis at high hydrogen gas pressures (hy-py) in Black Carbon quantification, the quantification of Marine 14C Reservoir effects in the high latitude North Atlantic, and the complementary use of stable isotopes and 14C in palaeodietary and ecosystem analysis.
