I am an expert in quantitative reconstruction of environmental change inferred from lacustrine diatoms using multivariate statistical methods. Representative of my work are the following publications: A new approach to reduce secondary gradients in training sets for total phosphorus inferred from lacustrine diatoms (Paleo3 2006), the use of sub annual samples for seasonal climate reconstruction inferred from diatoms (JOPL 2007), the characterization and application of diatom ecomorphs (Freshwater Biology 2001), and the description of a new extinct Cyclotella pingualutii that can be used as a chrono marker (Diatom Research 2012). I am committed to high consistency in diatom taxonomy and to advancement of diatoms as bioindicators.
