My research is focused on creating reconstructions of vegetation and climate for the Late glacial and Holocene period. I analyze pollen and plant macrofossils from sediments collected in lake and bog environments. Combining these records with other proxies such as loss-on-ignition and a good chronology provides information on interactions between the landscape, climate and vegetation. Previously I have worked with North-Western European sites. Currently I am focusing on multiple islands in the Southern Ocean as part of the 'Effects and Responses to changing environments in the Sub-Antarctic' (CHANGE) project.

The CHANGE project.

Effects and responses to changing environments in the Sub-Antarctic (CHANGE) is a three-year project funded by the Department of Biological Sciences, University of Bergen.
