Manuel is an early-career researcher focused on the development of tools and techniques to convert bioproxy data into quantitative information. His work lies at the interface between data-producers and modellers to facilitate communication between these two broad communities. He principally works on pollen records from the Southern Hemisphere landmasses.

Antje is Professor of Geology and Geosystems and founded the institute of Geosystems and Bioindication (IGeo), working at the interface of geo- and biosciences. Her team uses remains from aquatic organisms from lake and estuarine sediments and geochemical proxies to monitor the response of the aquatic system and water quality to climate change and human impact. Most important areas of research currently are the Tibetan Plateau, Central America and Central Europe.
Orijemie’s main scientific interest lies in exploring
palynomorphs (pollen and spores) in terrestrial and marine sediments from the
tropics in the reconstruction of palaeoenvironmental settings, vegetation
changes and climate dynamics in the geologic past. Orijemie also focuses on
human (hominin)-environmental dynamics within archaeological contexts particularly
in tropical Africa.
Birbal Sahni Institute Of Palaeosciences, 53, University Road, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh - 226007, India
Nivedita is working as a Woman Scientist (WOS-A DST) at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeosciences Lucknow, India. Her research interest include Quaternary Palaeoclimatic investigations based on multi-proxy data, such as palynological, mineral magnetic and Carbon isotope records from sub-surface sediments of Eastern Himalaya and parts of northeastern India. Presently she is working on Lake sediments from the Eastern Himalaya for palaeoclimatic studies in the monsoon dominated of Northeast India. She has also worked on Tree-ring records from various parts of the Himalayas

Anne De Vernal
Université Du Québec à Montréal, Geotop-UQAM, PO Box 8888, Montreal, Qc H3C 3P8 Canada
Anne is professor in Earth Sciences. She is micropaleontologist and her ,main research projects deal with climate and ocean changes in High latitudes of the North Hemisphere during the Plio-Quaternary with special focus on land-sea interaction.
Qiuzhen is Research Associate of F.R.S.-FNRS and Associate Professor of Université catholique de Louvain. Her research is on paleoclimate modelling and is focused on understanding the interglacial climates of the Quaternary. She also works on understanding the Chinese loess by using soil and climate models.
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, NY, USA
Jerry McManus is a Senior Staff member of the Geochemistry Division of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences of Columbia University. His research primarily utilizes deep-sea sediments and is focused on reconstructing natural variability in the Earth’s climate and the large-scale ocean circulation, with a special focus on the role that the ocean plays in abrupt climate change.
Julieta's research focuses on fossil insects (chironomids) from lake sediments for environmental and climate reconstructions during the Quaternary. Julieta is a Senior Researcher at CONICET and head of the CENAC (biodiversity program in the Nahuel Huapi National Park in Patagonia Argentina)
Pontificia Universidad Católica De Chile, Av. Libertador Bernardo O'Higgins 340, Santiago 6513677
A Professor at the Department of Ecology, Claudio heads the Laboratory of Paleoecology & Paleoenvironments (LP2). Trained in multiple paleoecological analyses, including stable isotope analyses, he specializes in understanding the evolution of arid and semiarid ecosystems in the arid regions of South America during the late Quaternary and how enviromental change impacts past cultural change.
University College London, Gower Steet, London WC1E 6BT
Jonathan is Professor of Physical Geography and Director of the Environmental Change Research Centre within the Department of Geography at University Ciollege London. He works on lake records of past climate, primarily from the late Pleistocene and Holocene (but occasionally extending to the pre-Quaternary), with emphasis on abrupt climate change in middle and low latitude regions. His main research 'tools' are ostracods and stable isotopes.
University Of Amsterdam, Institute For Biodiversity & Ecosystem Dynamics, P.O. Box 94240, 1090 GE Amsterdam, The Netherlands
William is an Associate Professor in Palaeoecology and Head of the Department of Ecosystem & Landscape Dynamics within the Institute of Biodiversity & Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) at the University of Amsterdam. He is interested in understanding how, and why, ecosystems have developed over long (Quaternary) timescales at big (landscape-continental) spatial scales. To achieve this he employes a multi-proxy approach to studying lake sediments, often featuring the analysis of pollen (for vegetation reconstruction) and charcoal (for fire history resonstruction), and often in the tropics (South America and Africa). To find out more visit his blog "Ecology of the past" ( www.ecologyofthepast.info).
Oregon State University, 104 CEOAS Admin, Oregon State University, Corallis, OR 97331, USA
Ayako is Professor of Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute (AORI), The University of Tokyo, Japan. She leads a group of paleoclimate modelling using MIROC climate model and IcIES ice sheet model to study the climate dynamics that operates the glacial cycles and abrupt climate changes.
