I am Flavia Boscolo-Galazzo, I am Italian and was previously a postdoctoral researcher at Cardiff University. At UiB, I am a postdoc in Nele Meckler’s lab – Quaternary Geology and Paleoclimate group. I work on reconstructing Southern Ocean deep and intermediate water temperatures using ocean sediments dating back to around 30 million years ago, when the Antarctic ice-sheet had only recently formed and was highly unstable. I am a micropaleontologist specializing in benthic and planktonic foraminifera, I am interested in using foraminiferal fossil shells chemistry to reconstruct past climates and ocean biogeochemical cycles, and to investigate foraminiferal biogeography and macroecology in connection with past climate changes.
Here’s a link to the latest research project I have been working on:
