I am a geographer specialising in geomorphology and particularly drylands.

My current research is on wind erosion and dust emission and particularly representing these processes in land surface models (LSMs) to improve regional and global carbon (C), dust (D), energy (E) and water (W) cycles for CO2 emission and human impact on global climate change

Supporting the reduction of road traffic accidents due to dust storm reduced visibility with the implementation of a new dust emission model

Supporting air quality (particulate matter < 10 microns; PM10) modelling across the USA and New South Wales, Australia with the implementation of a new dust emission model.
