Research Interests

I am interested in anything to do with fossils and palaeontology, and the application of fossils to understanding Earth history. My current research interests include the New Zealand geological histories and development of, and the human impacts on, modern estuaries and waterways that I investigate through microfossil and sediment records. Deeper in geological time I also research the evolution and ecology of Palaeozoic bryozoans and their response to changing ocean chemistry and palaeogeography. I have worked in Tasmania, the Canadian Arctic and throughout New Zealand and love any excuse to get out in the field.

Key palaeontological skills - New Zealand foraminifera and Palaeozoic bryozoan systematics.
