I am a palaeoclimatologist with special emphasis on dendrochronological methods.
Over the last few years, I have also collaborated with Sandy Tudhope using coral records to study past climate.
My particular interest is the reconstruction and understanding of past climate for the last 1500 years.
I am currently funded through the European Union on a project entitled, "Millennium - European Climate of the last Millennium. The Millennium project is a multidisciplinary consortium of more than 40 European universities and research Institutes, with the aim of answering a single question:
Does the magnitude and rate of 20th Century climate change exceed the natural variability of European climate over the last millennium?
