Research

 

My interest in palaeoecology, vegetation dynamics, fire history and human impact on terrestrial ecosystems mainly concerns the interpretation of long-term disturbances (causes/consequences) and the possible connection to the ongoing climate change. My present research at the Lund University is mainly focused on the reconstruction of global/regional biomass burning over the Holocene based on sedimentary charcoal records. The most important aim is to better understand past fire history and environmental dynamics in order to use palaeo-data for validating dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs) designed to project potential future responses to climate, vegetation and anthropogenic land-cover variations.
