I’m a broadly trained palaeoecologist with main interests in reconstructing past environmental changes, with a specific focus on vegetational responses to climate change and disturbance (e.g. fire and land use). My main research tools are plant remains (pollen, plant macrofossils, and charcoal) preserved in Quaternary deposits.

More details on my research activities, publications, and opinions can be found on my personal webpage at
