Research interests

Dan's research is focussed on the environmental history of the southwest Pacific region, but particularly mainland Southeast Asia (Thailand, Cambodia).

Dan applies expertise in palaeo-botany and sedimentology to document the response of tropical ecosystems to climatic variability and human activities over long periods of time. The aim of this research is to reveal the complex mechanistic interaction between the biosphere (including humans) and the atmosphere in order to better understand the Earth System.

A key focus of Dan's work is the response of human communities to environmental change. For well over a decade Dan has studied the environmental history of medieval cities in Cambodia, particularly the world-famous city of Angkor.

Honours topics for 2017

Geoarchaeology, geochemisty and palaeobotany of the 'Golden Chariot Pond', Preah Khan of Kompng Svay, Cambodia.  Preah Khan of Kompong Svay, 100 km east of the capital at Angkor, was one of the largest cities within the medieval Khmer kingdom, but was counterintuitively said to have little evidence of a large urban population (Hendrickson and Evans, 2015; Hall et al. 2016).  Recent advances in remote sensing, however, have revealed an elaborate and extensive network of urban infrastructure (Evans, 2016).  This project will interrogate sediment-based proxies, using cores taken from the centre of the sacred enclosure at Preah Khan, to identify and date patterns of occupation and demise.

 

This project would suit students with training (or a strong interest) in geology, geochemisty, physical geography, geoarchaeology or archaeological science.

Geochemisty of Angkor Thom, Angkor, Cambodia.  Angkor was the capital district of the Khmer kingdom from the 9th to the 15th century C.E., and the walled city of Angkor Thom was its largest and most important site from its construction in the 12th century.  Despite more than once century of research at Angkor, the timing of the city’s abandonment has not been precisely determined. Competing conceptual models cannot be tested due to a lack of empirical data. The geochemical ‘fingerprint’ of industrial and domestic activity within Angkor Thom is preserved in the sediment that has accumulated over time in its moat, which received waste water from the city itself. This project will interrogate geochemical proxies to resolve debates surrounding the demise of Angkor.

This project would suit students with training (or a strong interest) in geology, geochemisty, physical geography, geoarchaeology or archaeological science.
