Short presentation

Swedish Research Council Fellow

My research aims to understand the relationship between physiological and environmental factors mirrored in the chemical composition and structure of teeth. Using stable isotope, trace and minor element compositions in dental biomineral I want to develop reliable proxies to living and extinct animal biology and environment. Currently I am also working on molecular recognition tools, and supervising a PhD project on geochemical archives in trace fossils.
