Adam is a first year PhD Physical Geography student investigating the potential benefits of peatland restoration for natural flood management (NFM). He will be using airbourne remote sensing to estimate the surface roughness changes, and associated effects on flood risk, arising from revegetation and gully blocking in the Peak District.

His previous research involved developing novel mapping applications of Sentinel-1 InSAR for upland wildfire burn scars and Quaternary glacial geomorphology.
