Research Summary

My key research theme analyses the interaction between humans and the environment in the North Atlantic islands (including the Atlantic Scottish islands, Faroes, Iceland and Greenland) through reconstructing and analyzing: 1) trajectories of environmental change, 2) the impact of human settlement on palaeoenvironments, 3) palaeoeconomies in different island settings and 4) cultural adjustments to environmental marginality. This research theme provides time-depth for understanding human societal response to rapid environmental change that represents one of the global challenges of the 21st century.
