Vittoria Lauretano

I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the Organic Geochemistry Unit (OGU) at the University of Bristol (UK). My main research interest involves the application of organic and inorganic geochemistry proxies to reconstruct changes in temperature and environments on land across the Cenozoic.

My current research focuses on understanding terrestrial temperature and paleoenvironmental changes across pivotal intervals of the geological record (e.g., Eocene-Oligocene transition) using a suite of organic geochemistry proxies (e.g., leaf waxes, GDGTs).

My former research area focused on the investigation of deep-sea changes and orbital forcing across the Early Eocene Climatic Optimum (EECO) using bulk and benthic foraminiferal stable isotope records.
