Research interests

My broad research interest is in the field of development and application of biogeochemical tracers to infer past changes in ocean chemistry and climate. The main focus is to use trace elements and isotopic compositions of biominerals (e.g., foraminiferal shells) and bulk sediment geochemical composition to reconstruct past changes in ocean chemistry, oceanic processes and climate variations on a variety of geological time-scales (centennial to millennial to orbital to tectonic). Another research area of interest is in understanding ecology, calcification, and evolutionary processes in response to climatic changes in marine calcifiers. Some areas of current research include:
  • Drivers of Indian Summer Monsoon rainfall during past warm climate (data-model integration approach)
  • Controls on trace elements (e.g., Mg, Li, Ba, Nd, Mn, U) and stable isotopes (e.g., oxygen and carbon) incorporation during bio-mineralization
  • Application of coupled trace elements/Ca ratios and oxygen isotope in foraminifera to reconstruct past changes in sea surface and bottom water properties
  • Study of microfossils species composition and shell parameters (length, size, density and weight) to understand ecology and controls on the calcification process
  • Validation and application of isotopic tracers (e.g., Sr, Nd and Li) in microfossils and sediments to understand changes in continental weathering, ocean circulation, and provenance during the Cenozoic
  • Modern Coral reef habitat health and conservation 
  • Impact of microplastic pollution

Reconstructing South Atlantic Ocean Circulation changes across the Eocene-Palaeocene
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Co-investigator01 Jun 202231 Aug 2024NERC Natural Environment Research Council

The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) is a key component of the modern global ocean circulation, distributing heat, salt, and biologically essential nutrients globally, and exerting a fundamental influence on global climate. Yet, we have very limited understanding how unstable the AMOC will be in the future. To tackle this uncertainty, the climatic warmth of the Eocene-Paleocene offers an opportunity to improve our understanding of ocean circulation under acute warmth. Therefore, this project plans to generate records of South Atlantic Ocean circulation through the Eocene-Palaeocene using a coupled-proxy approach of isotopes of neodymium (εNd) and carbon (δ13C) benthic records.

Evaluating diversity and inclusion within the (geochemistry) academic ladder (E-DIAL)
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Dec 202130 Jun 2022NERC Natural Environment Research Council

This project (E-DIAL) will provide a snapshot of diversity in the UK’s geochemistry community, through an intersectional lens, with emphasis on the HEI academic ladder. As a multi-faceted discipline, geochemistry is central to Earth and environmental science. However, no specific workforce data exists with which to motivate or evaluate policies to tackle under-representation of minoritised groups. Our approach is only possible through timely collaboration of social scientists with serving members of a committee of the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG). Geochemistry community data, collected through an EAG survey, will be the first of its kind. Alongside, we will evidence past and recent rates of appointment, progression, and retention of under-represented groups across all levels of seniority within UK HEIs. In profiling the career pipeline(s) of geochemists and evidencing lived experiences, understanding will be built to inform prevailing policies, attitudes, and practice while assessing the effectiveness of policies at institutions with, e.g., differing Athena Swan certifications. Findings will test the hypothesis that “there is an erosion of diversity within geochemistry careers”. Project results will be disseminated via publication, institutional seminars, conference presentations/networking, panel discussions and a NERC knowledge exchange virtual event; raising awareness and stimulating people at all educational stages to prompt wider participation. E-DIAL investigators interact at higher organisational levels and may submit evidence to inform the next All-Party Parliamentary Group report on Diversity and Inclusion in STEM. Hence, informing and shaping policy change to achieve improved diversity and inclusion while establishing practice for continued institutional level monitoring.

Reconstruction of changes in Indian Summer Monsoon precipitation
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Jul 201630 Sep 2016NERC Natural Environment Research Council

The Indian Summer Monsoon (ISM, a subsystem of Asian Monsoon) is a classic example of coupling between the solid Earth, ocean and atmospheric processes. The intensity of the ISM is due to anomalous heating of the troposphere over central Asia. This results in the formation of a low-pressure system that draws moist air from the surrounding oceans, and in turn results in intense precipitation across Indochina and south Asia, impacting billions of people. The intensity of this low-pressure system over the Asian continent and in turn, the summer monsoon precipitation intensity, is directly linked to the regional tectonic evolution of present day Asia [1]. This has been the case since the initial collision of India and Asia during the Cenozoic, around 50 Ma [2]. An interesting question on tectonic time-scales (i.e., >1 million years) therefore, is how summer monsoon precipitation varied over past climate extremes (e.g., glacial-interglacial during the Pliocene) and how this in turn affected continental erosion and consequently altered tectonic activity rates (i.e. exhumation and uplift) in the Himalaya and Tibet. The understanding of the variability of ISM precipitation due to climate-modulated processes in controlling tectonic evolution will be a step forward in understanding future changes in ISM precipitation. This study will therefore focus on investigating ISM precipitation variability since the Pliocene, providing a formidable analogue for future climate predictions [3]. This project aims to quantify change in terrestrial input due to the summer monsoon runoff strength. It will utilise newly drilled (International Ocean Discovery Programme Expedition 353) sedimentary sequences from the Andaman Sea (site U1448), one of the core regions of ISM precipitation and runoff, and site receives continental runoff during the ISM from the Irrawaddy and Salween rivers. The project involves: 1) Determination of elemental composition of bulk sediment from IODP site U1448 using portable X-Ray Fluorescence technique. New records of elemental concentration and ratios will be generated to understand changes in terrestrial input derived from monsoon runoff. 2) Reconstruction of total organic carbon and carbon isotopic composition of organic carbon variability to assess changes in organic carbon input from C3 versus C4 plants due to change in continental vegetation. 3) Quantification of variability of terrigenous input and total carbonate fraction during glacial-interglacial and the Pliocene.

How has recent ocean acidification affected the biocalcification and ecology of planktonic foraminifera?
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Apr 201531 Mar 2016Cushman Foundation

This project aims to monitor the biological impact of recent Ocean Acidification (OA) by assessing changes in modern planktonic foraminifera (PF) flux and shell calcification. This project utilises a bi-weekly sediment trap time series (Ocean Flux Program) to quantify seasonal and interannual changes in PF flux, calcification and trace element incorporation in relation to physical and chemical oceanographic changes. These developed proxies will be utilised to constrain the changes in shell calcification and seawater chemistry in the past century (due to anthropogenic OA) and over glacial-interglacial timescales.

Indian Summer Monsoon: initiation and evolution to current strength
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead29 Nov 201431 Mar 2016NERC Natural Environment Research Council

The Asian Monsoon is one of the best examples of coupling between solid Earth and atmospheric processes but its initiation and evolution over tectonic (million years) time scales are poorly understood. The key question that this project will address is when did the present strength of the Indian Summer Monsoon (ISM) (a subsystem of the Asian Summer Monsoon) occur? This project will primarily utilise newly drilled continuous sedimentary successions from the Bay of Bengal (IODP Expedition 353) to reconstruct tectonic scale changes in (a) sea surface temperature (Mg/Ca in planktonic foraminifera) and sea surface salinity (d18O seawater from coupled d18O and Mg/Ca of planktonic foraminifera) (b) erosional strength (Al/Si) and continental flux variation as a result of monsoon runoff. The obtained multi-proxy data will provide insights into the initiation and evolution of ISM precipitation/runoff in the past and to its current strength.
