We are a paleoecology group based at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Our work uses molecular, geochemical, and biological subfossil analyses to identify ecological changes over centuries to millennia. We use environmental archives such as lake sediments and peat deposits to recognize the timing and relative importance of natural and anthropogenic drivers across relevant spatial and temporal scales. We aim to develop research projects that significantly increase our understanding of ecological stresses, and ecosystem plasticity and adaptability, particularly in the in the context of coastal environments and peoples of Canada.
