Addysgu

I teach students how the landscapes on which humans live are formed and how they change through time. My classes in the first and third year focus on understanding the fluvial, glacial, and hillslope processes that shape landscapes. We utilise GIS, computer models, and field-based observations to test hypotheses about how Earth's surface changes through time. In the field, I teach students about the development of sedimentary basins in Dorset, Quaternary landscapes in the Brecon Beacons, and the development of geohazards in Tenerife.

My research focuses on understanding what processes act on the hillslopes between river channels and their rates. I am interested in how changes to Earth's climate and vegetation control these processes and the hazards they pose to humans. I pose questions about the role of frost in the development of mountain landscapes and how humans, vegetation, and climate interact to create landslide hazards.
