Sjoerd Kluiving specialises in Earth Sciences in Landscape Archaeology, particularly interdisciplinary research in the disciplines of Archaeology, Historical Geography and Geology. His key interests are:
• Sedimentology
• Structural geology
• Glacial processes
• Geophysics
• Microstructural analysis (micromorphology)
• Interdisciplinary research
Sjoerd is as a geologist and physical geographer involved in applying earth sciences to archaeology. He is responsible for teaching several BSc and MSc courses and is innovator in teaching methods. He has managed projects in (field-based) evaluation of archaeological monuments and is the initiator and project manager of involving cultural history in spatial planning processes. He has published in earth science journals as well as in cultural publications and is currently Guest Editor for the LAC2010 proceedings in 2010 in Quaternary International.

Sjoerd has, besides his teaching position, a research and consulting company ( www.geo-logical.nl) in earth sciences and works for government agencies and archeological companies. Sjoerd has a special interest in interdisciplinary research as well as glacial processes.
