About this person
Dr Stijn De Schepper did his undergraduate studies at Ghent University and the University of Liège (Belgium). He did a PhD at the University of Cambridge (UK) on Pliocene–Quaternary biostratigraphy and palaeoecology of dinoflagellate cysts. After postdoctoral positions at the University of Bremen (Germany) and the University of Bergen (Norway), he is currently a Principal Scientist at Uni Research and is affiliated to the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.
Research interests include Neogene to Quaternary palaeoceanography and palaeoclimate; Arctic sea ice and ice sheet evolution; North Atlantic Current and its influence on NW Europe; ocean and climate variability during past warm periods; multi-proxy research including dinoflagellate cysts, foraminifera (Mg/Ca, stable isotopes) and organic biomarkers (alkenones, IP25); biostratigraphy
He is the principal investigator for the NFR-project Pliocene East Greenland Current and Sea Ice Evolution (PEGSIE, 201–2017).
