Organisation or Individual Expertise:
My main interest of relevance is the application of geochemistry to geological and environmental questions, in particular: 1) The application of tephrostratigraphy and tephrochronology to resolving the relative and absolute timing of past climatic changes. I have worked mainly in marine and lake sedimentary paleoenvironmental archives and also in archaeological settings; 2) The use of volcanic deposits for reconstructing the geochemical evolution of magmatic systems, in particular the build-up to large volume eruptions an order to reconstruct the geochemical-frequency-magnitude behaviour of a volcano; 3) The use of halogens as tracers of magmatic processes, both in the deep mantle and in crustal level magma chambers.

Moving towards Reliable Decadal Climate Predictions
I was a PDRA on the UK NERC RESET project: Response of Humans to Abrupt Environmental Transitions (http://c14.arch.ox.ac.uk/reset). The project aims to construct a new improved chronological framework for Europe using volcanic ash layers (tephra horizons) which represent time-parallel signatures allowing archaeological and geological records to be linked.
