Petronela Ševčíková

Research Assistant

Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute

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.

Marit Holten Løland

PhD Student

Department of Earth Science – University of Bergen, Norway

I work with the fluid inclusion microthermometry method to reconstruct past temperatures over glacial-interglacial timescales from tropical speleothems.


Benjamin Tiger

PhD Student

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

I am interested drivers of Indo-Pacific climate variability over interannual to orbital timescales and their impacts on East African hydroclimate. My recent work focuses on reconstructing deglacial climate change using speleothems from Madagascar.


Calla Gould

PhD Student

The University of Melbourne, Australia


I’m using subaqueous speleothems from Australia’s southern arid margin to reconstruct palaeohydrology since the Last Interglacial.
