Buckingham Building, Lion Terrace, Portsmouth, Hants, PO1 3HE
Graham graduated from the University of Liverpool with a BSc in Geography and an MSc in Recent Environmental Change. He completed his PhD in the School of Biological and Earth Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University, where he conducted research into the application of stable isotope geochemistry as a method to reconstruct Holocene sea-level change and coastal evolution. Graham then spent two years as a NERC Postdoctoral Research Assistant and then as an Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Geography, University of Hull. During this time, he worked for Dr Jane Reed on a NERC-funded project investigating the nature of Eastern Mediterranean climate change during successive glacial-interglacial transitions. He has research interests in Quaternary climate change and Holocene sea-level change, and expertise in palaeolimnology, palaeoecology and stable isotope geochemistry.
