I am an Earth Scientist with broad interests in Quaternary science, archaeological science, palynology, sedimentology, molluscs, palaeoecology and palaeoenvironments. I use palynology to help in forensic cases. I also have interests in Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous stratigraphy and palaeoenvironments. I have done research in many countries including the UK, Ireland, Malta, Libya, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Jordan, Iraq, Vietnam, Borneo, Norway.
I have published three edited books and over 190 research papers/book chapters. I am the founding editor of Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports and was previously editor of Journal of Archaeological Science. Currently I have funded research projects in Malta, Kurdish Iraq and Borneo.
