Nora studies organic geochemical and molecular biomarkers in lake sediments to develop climatic and ecological reconstructions over time. Her current research focuses on multi-decadal and centennial climate changes in the North Atlantic over the past 2,000 years using lake sediment records from Iceland and the Azores to refine our understanding of the natural processes (i.e., the Atlantic Multi-Decadal Variability) governing climate fluctuations. In addition, Nora is interested in understanding how human settlement in Iceland and the Azores has contributed to major environmental changes.
