My research interests encompass the palynology, palaeoenvironments and palaeoclimates of the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic. Much of my recent work has focused on the palynostratigraphy of the Middle - Upper Triassic succession of Svalbard and the Norwegian Barents Sea. However, I am also interested in wider issues such as the global Triassic climate and floral evolution.
