  • Macroevolution and the relative contributions of biotic interactions (e.g., symbiosis, parasitism) and abiotic factors (e.g., climate) in driving macroevolutionary patterns
  • Biodiversity dynamics, modelling and prediction
  • Marine ecosystems with emphasis on coral reefs
  • Carbonate rocks as archives of palaeoenvironmental and palaeoclimate change
  • Stratigraphic palaeobiology and sequence stratigraphy
  • Reconstruction of palaeoenvironments
  • Integration of processes at multiple time scales: from deep-time to Recent

We offer topics for small projects and Masters theses involving field- and collections-based research, data mining and theoretical palaeobiology, ultrastructural analysis, biomineralisation, and diagenesis. Many topics are available in collaboration with other institutions and within the interdisciplinary research unit
