Richard Vachula uses paleoecological and organic geochemical techniques to reconstruct terrestrial environmental histories (including climate, ecology, and anthropology) from lake sediment archives. His research has focused upon topics including the interplay between cultural perceptions of climate change and the Arctic, the Holocene climatic history of Alaska’s North Slope, and computational modelling of lake sediment-based fire history proxies. He is particularly interested in the dynamic interactions between fire, climate, ecology, and human land use.
