Research Interest 1

I am particularly interested on understanding the environmental causes that impact on marine and terrestrial ecosystems, from recent to older periods. Climate change on the long term is pretty much understood, but abrupt variability on a millennial or centennial remains unexplained, and that is one of my research interest.
