Research interests

My interests are centered around large-scale processes in the present and Earth's history, which have relevance to present-day environmental change. This includes research on environmental change in carbonate platforms in the Cretaceous (present-day analogue: coral-reef plateaus), phosphorite deposits (carrying the essential nutrient phosphate), organic-carbon-rich deposits (sinks for atmospheric CO2), weathering processes on the continent (as a source for essential biophile elements), and paleoclimatic reconstructions.
