Paleoclimate reconstruction of continental Eurasia from speleothems and surficial carbonate deposits.

Research Assistant

Geological Institute of Dionýz štúr, Bratislava, Slovakia

My research project is devoted to the reconstruction of the evolution of a unique type of caves, that are formed in depth under the surface – hypogene crystal caves- and the paleohydrologic regime involved in their formation.

My research focuses on the reconstruction of climate in subtropics based on cave speleothem, mostly during glacial periods. I also have interests in Paleo-ice and Paleo-magnet.

I am interested in U-series dating of terrestrial carbonate deposits (calcrete and tufa in particular) and their palaeoenvironmental potential for understanding climate change and human evolution in the southern Kalahari region in South Africa.
