My PhD is part of the NERC funded project, '500,000 years of solar irradiance, climate and vegetation changes'. I'll be looking at modern pollen-vegetation relationships in Ghana, using pollen traps to characterise pollen output from different vegetation types such as savannah and seasonally dry tropical forest. This work will aid in the interpretation of the long term pollen record data from Lake Bosumtwe. I will also be partaking in outreach activities and undertaking fieldwork in Ghana on both 2013 and 2014 to collect and replace pollen traps.
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
