Kamila’s major research interests include paleoceanography, paleoclimate, paleoecology, methane seeps, authigenic carbonates, Arctic, abrupt climate and oceanographic changes. Specifically, the frequency of methane emissions from the seafloor through time in relation to past climate change.
She holds a MSc degree in Oceanography from the University of Gdansk in Poland.
She is currently in the final stages of her PhD research at the Department of Geology, University of Tromsø. She utilizes the distribution patterns of benthic and planktic foraminifera species, stable isotopes signatures in their shells together with other geochemical, sedimentological and physical parameters to study the effects of climate and ocean circulation changes in the Arctic region on gas hydrate stability and methane release.
