Research

Dr Hasiotis's research uses both modern and ancient field and laboratory studies in continental and marine sedimentary systems to understand organism-sediment interactions and the physicochemical controls through space and time. Physicochemical controls in continental and marine systems are distinct, but can result in similar bioturbation patterns. Correctly evaluating subtle differences can have important implications for interpreting EODs. Temporal (stratigraphic) changes of trace fossil diversity, abundance, distribution, and resultant textures likewise provide clues to environmental and climatic processes and perturbations that help shape sedimentary bodies.
