Research summary

My research focuses on understanding the causes and effects of global warming and ocean acidification, both in the modern era and in geological time. I am recognised as an expert in the biotic reactions of marine calcifiers to climate change. Our assessment of historical and geological records of ocean acidification covers a range of organisms from bryozoans, bivalves and corraline algae to marine plankton. My group and I are using tools from a wide range of fields including isotope geochemistry, material testing, tomography to fluid dynamics. We have applied a wide range of in-situ analytical methods such as the ion ...
