Expertise & Interests

Overview / specialty        I am interested in abrupt climate change events as well as thresholds and feedbacks in the climate system. I use Earth System Climate Models in conjunction with paleoclimate records to improve our understanding of the basic mechanisms underlying climate variability and climate change, particularly in the context of terrestrial biogeochemical cycles and ocean circulation.
