Dr Jonathan Dean

Lecturer in Physical Geography

Faculty and Department

  • Faculty of Science and Engineering
  • Department of Geography, Geology and Environment

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.
