Robert D'Anjou

Ph.D. Geosciences

My research interests involve the application of organic geochemical (biomarker and molecular marker) proxies to lake sediments to examine past changes in environmental and climatic conditions. I am most interested in developing new methods and proxies that can improve our ability to reliably reconstruct the timing and magnitude of anthropogenic impacts on past environments, ultimately helping improve our ability to effectively disentangling natural and anthropogenic signals in Holocene paleo-records. However, my interests are much broader than that, and include: crypto-tephrochronology, paleolimnology, limnology, paleoclimatology, paleoceanography, organic biogeochemistry, stable isotope geochemistry, geobiology, sedimentology, and Quaternary paleoenvironments.
