7 - Team researchers


Audrey Morley, PhD

Principle Investigator

Audrey is a lecturer in Physical Geography at the National University of Ireland Galway, and affiliated with iCRAG, the Ryan Institute, and the PRU. In addition, she is the President of the Network of Arctic Researchers in Ireland (NARI) and the Director of the new BSc Programme in Geography and Geosystems. Audrey’s research focuses on the development of palaeoceaonographic tools and understanding climate dynamics of warm climates.

Elwyn de la Vega, PhD

Post-Doctoral Researcher

After completing a PhD at the University of Southampton working on constraining the boron isotope proxy, Elwyn now  focuses on the carbon cycle in the modern and recent geological past. He uses the geochemistry (boron isotopic d11B and elemental composition) of planktonic foraminifera to reconstruct the carbon cycle in the past to understand the role of atmospheric CO2 in regulating past climates globally and regionally (focusing on the Nordic seas).
