  • Mick graduated from Kingston University in 1993 with a BSc (Hons) in Geology.
  • His doctoral research, carried out at the University of Cambridge (1993-97), was primarily concerned with the multi-proxy analysis of a long (319m, three hundred and fifty thousand year-old) sedimentary sequence from the Ioannina lake basin in NW Greece.
  • On gaining a Research Fellowship in Earth Sciences at St John's College, Cambridge (1996-2000), his post-doctoral work continued these investigations, focusing in particular on the character of climatic variability in the Eastern Mediterranean during the last interglacial period (Marine Isotope Stage 5e).
  • Mick joined the University of Sussex in October 2000 as a Lecturer in Physical Geography and has since been extending the geographical range of his research by looking at Late Holocene lake sites in Peru. He became Senior Lecturer in October 2005 and received a University Teaching Award (a joint award with Dr D Kniveton) in 2008. He became a Reader in 2019.
