Research interests

My main research interest concerns environmental and climatic history of northwest Africa and the Mediterranean, looking at geomorphology, palaeoecology, and palynology geochemistry (stable carbon isotope analysis and UV-B biomarker analysis).

Methodological knowledge

  • Stable carbon isotope analysis of pollen.
  • FTIR and GC-MS analysis of pollen.
  • Concentration and isolation of fossil pollen grains by species.
  • Pollen identification/morphology.
  • Pollen size determination using partical size analysis.
  • GIS and modelling.
  • R.
