Research with an emphasis on improving the understanding of mechanisms and impacts of environmental and climate changes is what interests me the most. I want to understand and investigate how natural climate variations affect the environmental conditions on Earth`s different region. And how sensitive Earth`s climate is to the alteration of the biosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere and lithosphere by human activity.
My primary research interests are land-ocean interaction and the environmental response to past and recent climate variability in terms of marine productivity, weathering, erosion and sediment transport towards the coastal and deep ocean. The main focus of my research are (a) the detection of sources of particular sediment components to identify environmental mechanisms controlling their supply and distribution, (b) the identification of new proxies for terrestrial input/river discharge, (c) the examination of the origin, transport, and character of organic matter in marine sediments to constrain remineralization processes and carbon burial rates, (d) the reconstruction of climate variability on Holocene sequences.
