Overview

Personal webpage | Google Scholar | Twitter

I am a Quaternary scientist, mostly interested in changes in past climate and how they affected the timing and nature of glacier advances over the last 2.5 million years.

My research involves using geomorphology left behind by ancient ice sheets and glaciers to reconstruct their former advance and retreat. I use geochronological techniques to reconstruct rates of past ice activity in Patagonia, western North America, Antarctica and Greenland.

I am a member of the Quaternary Environments and Geoarchaeology group at the University of Manchester.
