I am a teaching and scholarship lecturer, teaching Ocean Science predominantly on the longer timescales (Orbital to Tectonic timescales). My background in science starts with a MSc in geology, followed by a PhD (completed in 2007) in climate reconstruction, both from the Free University in Amsterdam. During my PhD, which dealt with the strength of the Indian Monsoon during glacial terminations, I used foraminifera as a palaeoenvironmental proxy. I kept working with these microfossils for several research projects to come; at the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromsø, I used them for monitoring anthropogenic warming in the Barents Sea. In 2009 I went to the UK to reconstruct sea level changes in the North Atlantic on short (500 years) timescales at Plymouth University, and on Milankovitch timescales at the Universities of Plymouth and York. In 2014 I moved to Bangor University to reconstruct the demise of the last ice sheet on the British Isles. In 2017 I made a move to full-time teaching.
