Within the NORDQUA network we aim to highlight recent PhD graduates whose research has focussed on the Quaternary, either from those based in the Nordic countries or those whose research area includes the Nordic region.

Profiles are organised by the host institution’s country, with the most recent graduates listed first. Thesis abstracts and contact information can be found by clicking on each profile.
