The planetary magnetic field is one ingredient for life on Earth. It importantly deflect damaging radiations from the sun and from outside our solar system. Future changes in Earth's magnetic field could impact the way we live and our modern technologies and there is a lot to learn from the geological record on how the Earth magnetic field works. My research unlocks data from the past in materials such as lake and marine sediments, cave deposits, archaeological artifacts and lava flows to better understand how the Earth magnetic field changes and what to expect in the future. I reconstruct the Earth magnetic field history, build dating tools and engage in multi-disciplinary investigations.
