Organisation or Individual Expertise:
My main relevant expertise lies in the development and application of geochemical methods to environmental, climate change and raw materials issues. I have a particular interests in: i) using past deposition rates of dust as a climate proxy; ii) reconstructing industrial and agricultural air pollution from study of lake sediments and peat cores; iii) the natural occurrence of rare metals used in IT and new energy solutions; and iv) developing new vectors to ore deposits.
