Andrew Cohen

Andrew Cohen studies lake deposits to interpret environmental and ecological history. He has used fossil and recent crustaceans and mollusks and sedimentary records to study a variety of subjects such as the geological history of lake basins, the evolution of endemic invertebrates that live in lakes, the history of human impacts on lake ecosystems and the use of long lake sediment drill core records to understand the environmental context of human origins. Most of his research has concentrated on lakes and lake deposits of the East African rift system.
