Scientific interests

I specialize in the study of climate change, with a primary focus on sea level change and natural hazards such as tsunamis impacting tropical coastlines and the communities residing there. Utilizing archaeological, sedimentological, and biological proxy records, my research aims to understand the character of sea level changes and tsunami events, exploring their historical and contemporary implications for coastal populations. Looking ahead, the aim is to connect these findings with the long-term sustainability of coastal living, investigating potential adaptations to rising sea levels. The ultimate goal is to enhance our understanding of the likelihood of coastal hazards affecting Southeast Asian coastlines, contributing valuable insights for both current and future generations.
