During my Geography degree at University of Oxford, I focused on the study of desert landscapes, the Quaternary period and climatic change and variability. My dissertation studied the interaction between fire, climate, vegetation and human activity in the Holocene. I analysed charcoal content in a sediment core extracted from the Aammiq wetland, Lebanon, to produce the first fire history of Lebanon.
