Associate Professor

Qualifications: MSc DPhil Waikato

Research Interests

Current areas of research include: Investigation into atmospheric 14C concentrations as archived in OIS 3 subfossil kauri; calibration of Southern Hemisphere 14C levels over the last 1000 years by decadal, high precision analysis of New Zealand Silver Pine and Cedar samples; development of high quality synthetic silica counting vials now routinely used in some of the world's liquid scintillation laboratories;and assessment of the influence of freshwater dilution of 14C levels in harbour environments.
