Biography

I am the Director of the Centre for Sustainable Solutions and a Professor of Environmental and Climate Science. I lead the BECS research group that is focused on developing an understanding of organic molecules in modern organisms and environments that can be applied to analysing and interpreting past environments and climates. I am Principal Investigator of the NERC Strategic Programme: GALLANT: Glasgow as a Living Lab Accelerating Novel Transformation.

I am a  Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. I am a member of the Scottish Government's Clyde Mission Groups on Climate Adaptation and Net Zero, UKRI NERC Review College and Chair of the Geochemical Society's C.C. Patterson Award Committee.

Research interests

BECS - Biomarkers for Environmental and Climate Science:

  • Molecular fossils, or biomarkers, in terrestrial and marine sedimentary deposits
  • Developing quantitative proxies for temperature, ecological and hydrological processes in aquatic environments
  • Subalpine environments as sensitive regions to climate forcing and internal climate feedbacks that are driven by both natural and human impacts
  • Organic residue analysis to understand past practices and cultures
  • Lipid analysis applied to algal and other biofuels
  • Astrobiology and molecular signatures of life on other planets/planetary bodies
