Fields of Interest

Application of isotope physics on environmental processes; Mass spectrometry; Dynamics of earth surface processes and their interaction with climate in general. In particular: ice ages and their inter-hemispheric pattern; tele-connection between glaciations and abrupt climate changes; dating and quantifying landscape formation and evolution and their connection to climate and tectonics; long-term landscape denudation and climate of Antarctica; analysis of paleoclimate archives (terrestrial versus marine records); cosmogenic dating of earth surface processes and the underlying noble gas and radionuclide geochemistry.
