My research focuses on socio-environmental relations during the Holocene. I combine a wide spectrum of geoscientific methods of different disciplines (dating, geochemistry, geophysics, mineralogy, sedimentology, pedology, micromorphology) on varying sedimentary archives (soils and slope deposits, river deposits, lake sediments, archaeosediments). I am particularly interested in the impact of hazards on ancient societies, including flash floods, droughts, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. My main geographical work area is Europe. 

Keywords: Geo-Archaeology, socio-environmental dynamics, Holocene, Europe, hazards
