I´m a geochemist of a paleo-climate/ocean strain. My research here at Bergen is focused on exploiting the shell chemistry of foraminifera, using LA-ICP-MS combined with clumped isotope analysis, to reconstruct past ocean temperatures across the Cenozoic. This research is funded by Horizon 2020 and you can read more on the project here.
