Research Profile:

My research aims at establishing a high-resolution tephrostratigraphic record for the Eastern Mediterranean region with a focus on the Middle Pleistocene. The approach is based on detecting and geochemical fingerprinting of macro- and cryptotephra layers from key terrestrial and marine archives such as Tenaghi Philippon (NE Greece) and ODP Leg 160 core material (Eastern Mediterranean Sea). In order to link some of the yet unidentified distal tephra layers to the volcanic sources and facilitate their use as tephra markers, my new project seeks to refine proximal tephrostratigraphies in the South Aegean Volcanic Arc. The proximal pyroclastic deposits will be characterized using high-precision dating techniques (Ar-Ar, U-Th-Pb, (U-Th)/He) and geochemical glass microanalyses (EPMA, LA-ICP-MS, SIMS).
