As a Quaternary geologist I want to know what has happened during the glacials and interglacials, how landscapes and environments have developed, and understand why. I use geological archives such as sediment, stratigraphies and landforms to reconstruct ice age environments and use dating methods such as luminescence dating to find out when different events took place. Geographically I work mainly in the Arctic and in Scandinavia.
My main ongoing research projects are about glacial history and depositional environments during the last 200 000 years in northern Sweden and on Svalbard, and about postglacal aeolian deposits in Sweden and Norway. As manager for the Lund Luminescence Laboratory I also do research about luminescence and am collaborator in several projects that use luminescence dating around the world.
