Major research foci include (i) the long-term ecohydrological dynamics and functioning of temperate, tropical and subarctic peatlands; (ii) the use of testate amoebae as environmental indicators in peatlands and lakes; (iii)  high-resolution dating methods including tephrochronology; (iv) the critical examination of past human response and adaptation to climate change using palaeoenvironmental and archaeological data; (v) the use of palaeoenvironmental data and probability modelling in geohazards research; and (vi) the use of quantitative reconstruction and statistical modelling techniques for understanding long-term climatic and environmental change.
