Research interests

The earth underwent significant climatic changes throughout the glacial-interglacial cycles over the last 1.5 million years. I am fascinated by those periods of change and how they are recorded in a variety of natural archives. One important mechanism leading to climate variability is atmospheric pCO2. Throughout the last 800,000 years pCO2 has been recorded in ice core air bubbles. However, further in the past, its reconstruction still proposes a challenge. I am interested in improving the currently established proxies and applying them to oceanic fossils. As a result, we will hopefully be able to investigate important climate transitions in the Plio-Pleistocene.
