I am a doctoral student, and doing my PhD research under supervision of Dr. Brian CHASE at ISE_M. The objective of my topic research is to use fossil pollen from rock hyrax middens in the Namib Desert to determine how Africa’s southwestern low-latitude climates and environments have changed in response to global and regional scale earth system variability over the last 50,000 years. The pollen fossils and micro-charcoal in hyrax middens allow us to understand the vegetation changes in past and the history of fire frequency.
