Dr Jonathan Dean

Lecturer in Physical Geography

Summary

Jonathan started as a lecturer in physical geography at the University of Hull in February 2017. He is a Quaternary scientist, using stable isotope analysis of lake sediments to reconstruct past changes in hydroclimate. Jonathan is currently working in two parts of the world: in Ethiopia looking at climate changes over multiple glacial-interglacial cycles and in Turkey investigating changes over the late glacial and Holocene. He teaches on a number of modules from foundation year to third year.

Postgraduate

Jonathan welcomes applications for postgraduate supervision in his areas of expertise. Current PhD supervisions - Robyn Seymour-Jones, Quaternary Evolution of Mediterranean Lakes, co-supervisor with Dr Jane Reed and Prof Daniel Parsons (2017- )
