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 aims to quantify rainfall variability over recent millennia based on trace metal concentrations in stalagmites from New Zealand and the South Pacific.

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.
