I am a paleomagnetist working in the fields of Geochronology, Quaternary climates, and Archaeological Sciences. I am currently a McKenzie Fellow in the School of Earth Sciences. Prior to this I was a research fellow in Archaeomagnetism at La Trobe University, and I hold a PhD in Oceanography from the University of Quebec (Canada). I am interested in the behavior of the Earth magnetic field through time to develop paleomagnetic dating. My recent work focuses on the Southern Hemisphere and the Australasia region using a range of archives (marine and lake sediments, archaeological and historical artefacts, speleothems, and volcanic rocks). I am also passionate about promoting magnetism for Australian paleoclimate and archaeology. I use the magnetic properties of geological archives and artefacts as a versatile tool for multi-disciplinary investigations of past climates, ancient technologies, site occupation, and sourcing.
