Researcher biography

My interests lie in four related fields. 1. Paleoclimatology: I focus on the Southern Hemisphere Westerlies and the Australian and Asian Monsoons. 2. Paleoecology: I use pollen, chironomids and other biological proxies to reconstruct environmental changes. My work is focussed mainly in Australia, New Zealand and China 3. Glacial Geology: I determine the nature and cause of glacial events from geochronology, geomorphology and sedimentology with projects in New Zealand, Tasmania and the Pacific NW of North America 4. Coastal Evolution: I have active projects on coastal evolution of high energy coasts and dunefields, with a current ARC Discovery grant on the Coooloola Sand Mass and Fraser Island in SE Queensland, Australia.
