Andrew Kemp

Assistant Professor, Coastal Processes and Climate Change, Tufts University

Dr. Andrew Kemp is an Assistant Professor of Earth and Ocean Sciences at Tufts University. His research aims to produce detailed reconstructions of sea level over the last 2000 years, in particular to determine the response of local, regional and global sea level to known climate deviations such as the Medieval Climate Anomaly, Little Ice Age, and 20th century warming. Dr. Kemp takes an interdisciplinary approach to this work using coastal stratigraphy, biological, and geochemical proxies, varied dating methods and quantitative paleoenvironmental techniques to reconstruct sea level.
