Research interests:

  • Dinoflagellate cyst and acritarch biostratigraphy of the mid to high northern latitude oceans 
  • Neogene stratigraphy and depositional history of the North Sea and Norwegian Sea
  • Neogene and Quaternary palaeoceanography and palaeoclimate of the mid- to high latitude oceans (North Atlantic, Nordic Seas, Arctic, Pacific), including the evolution of the North Atlantic Current
  • Pliocene millennial-scale ocean and climate variability
  • Multi-proxy research combining dinoflagellate cysts and foraminifera (Mg/Ca, stable isotopes) for palaeoceanography and palaeoecology
  • Ecology of extinct dinoflagellate cysts and acritarchs

Current projects:

  • Stratigraphy of Neogene CO2 storage formations in the North Sea - dating the Utsira Sands (in cooperation with Statoil ASA)
  • Pliocene millennial-scale North Atlantic and Nordic Seas palaeoceanography
  • Neogene to Quaternary dinoflagellate cyst biostratigraphy of the Bering Sea
