Jane Bunting

Reader in Geography

Biography Jane Bunting went to university intending to be a physicist and got distracted.

After earning a degree and PhD at Cambridge, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher in Waterloo, Ontario, and at the University of Stirling before joining the University of Hull, initially as a lecturer, in 1997.

Her research interests revolve around the understanding of the long term ecological dynamics of cultural landscapes, mostly from pollen records.

She currently works mainly on modelling pollen dispersal and deposition as a tool for reconstructing past land cover as part of various international working groups, including PolLandCal, Landclim and PAGES Landcover6k.
