Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr. Celia Martin-Puertas is a Lecturer in Physical Geography and a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow at Royal Holloway University of London. She is a palaeoclimatologist working with annually laminated lake sediments (varves) and uses them as a record of past climate variability. Celia is interested in the evolution of atmospheric dynamics that control meteorological variables in the North Atlantic and European sectors during the present interglacial period, the last 11,700 years. Reconstructing interannual to decadal climate variability over thousands of years helps to better understand mechanisms behind extreme weather events such as floods or heat waves as well as the response of the Earth’s climate system to external climate forcing (e.g., solar activity, volcanic eruptions, ice melting, and green house gasses). Celia’s research is based on a co-production approach between palaeoclimatologists, meteorological organisations, and policy makers to better connect (palaeo) climate data with information required by stakeholders / policy makers for responses to climate change.
