In my research, I use diatoms (siliceous algae) fossilised in sediment, to infer and reconstruct the historical ecological conditions of lakes. For my PhD I am working on a New Zealand based project called "Lakes380" and analysing the diatom record from a selection of lakes in the Canterbury region of the South Island. The aim is to broadly identify lake response to varying land use changes in the past ~800 years.
