His wider research interests include quaternary climate dynamics, cross-correlation of sediment records and archaelogical data and statistical integration of geochronological data. Florian has considerable on- and offshore fieldwork experience across Europe and SE Asia.  He is currently working on reconstructing Holocene and Pleistocene palaeoenvironments in the Jubbah Oasis.
