Tutor in Coastal Geography

School of Earth and Environmental Sciences

I am a physical geographer interested in the evolution of coasts and catchments through both in the past and into the future. I use a combination of palaeo-environmental reconstruction techniques, historic data, geochronology and an understanding of geomorphology to reconstruct past coastal systems and predict how they may change under a changing climate. I am also interested in improving our understanding of coastal risk by enhancing the record of past storms.

Interests include;

  • Coastal and catchment geomorphology
  • Palaeo-environmental reconstruction
  • Geochronology
  • Coastal and catchment management
  • Flood risk
  • Environmental contamination
