Research

My research interests fall into two broad categories: the use of modern and fossil diatoms for monitoring environmental change, and the analysis of ecological and palaeoecological data.

The list below contains links to recent projects. A list of my recent publication can be found on the School web site.

Recent (and not so recent) projects
DARES, DALES and DARLEQ Diatom Assessment of River and Lake Ecological Status.
