Research interests

  • Hydrological Connectivity
  • Upland Hydrology
  • Fluvial Geomorphology
  • Digital Terrain Analysis
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Peatland Carbon Flux

My broad area of research focuses on the eroding peatland systems of the South Pennines. Of particular interest is the hydrological connectivity of various flow pathways, and how this is affected by the geomorphology and various other characteristics of this unique landscape. My PhD focussed on developing novel ways to monitor the interactions of these flow pathways and the use of innovative technologies remains one of my key interests. More recently, research focuses on carbon losses from eroding peatlands, specifically the fate of particulate carbon from peat deposited on floodplains.
