Dr. Caroline Davies

Prof. Davies is biogeographer whose research focuses on the processes of climate change and human/landscape relationships from a wide range of spatial and temporal scales in the Middle East and the American Midwest. She uses a variety of climate proxies to characterize past and present environments from examining Pleistocene and Holocene climate fluctuations across the Arabian Peninsula, arid land processes, changes in regional hydrology in Jordan, and human modification of the Yemen highlands, to exploring the relationship of airborne particulates and asthma in the modern urban environment. She is also active in the research of science education applications.
