My PhD is focused on understanding changes in palaeo-wildfire on a geological timescale. I am doing my research as part of the early Jurassic Earth System and Timescale (JET) project and work on the Early Jurassic sediments of Cardigan Bay. More specifically, I am examining the effect of climate forcing on an orbital time scale and climatic perturbations on wildfire activity. To better understand this, I use a range of proxies (palynological, isotopes, clay mineralogical) to reconstruct the palaeoenvironment.
