Personal profile


I am a hazard geoscientist with expertise in extreme coastal change including tsunamis and storms with a particular interest in their onshore sedimentological signature. My research considers the impact of submarine landslide tsunamis and the potential for an increase in this hazard to the North Atlantic with the response of climate change in the Arctic. I have wider interest in the sediment ‘fingerprint’ observed in the landscape of a range of natural hazards and use methodologies including sedimentology, paleoecology, geomorphology geology, geomatics, experimental and numerical modelling to investigate these in a range of environments.
