I am interested in long term human–environment interactions and the resilience of ecosystems to climatic change and human disturbance. In particular I have focused on the environmental impact of the settlement of the North Atlantic by the Norse, using tephra (volcanic ash) to date sediments and reconstruct rates and patterns of soil erosion in Iceland. More widely I am interested in how past societies responded to climatic change.
