The oceans are a critical global resource which is changing. Change is both natural but also, in recent times, has become anthropogenically driven. My research asks questions about how the resources we obtain from the oceans are altered by the synergy between natural and anthropogenic change while trying to better determine the actual extent of global change. Marine biodiversity, fisheries, energy cascades, climate control and global biogeochemical cycles are all resources / services that oceans provide which my research considers in three broad categories:
Global change and marine ecosystems
Investigating relationships between global change (e.g. climate variability & ocean acidification) and marine ecosystems
Climatic and ecological proxies for the Holocene
Development of ultra-high resolution palaeoclimatic and palaeoecological proxies for the Holocene
Fisheries and marine ecosystems
Investigating if/how fisheries impact the expected responses of marine ecosystems to global change
