As a Quaternary scientist, I'm interested in the role of glaciers, rivers and landslides in controlling the evolution of mountain landscapes and the topographic signature left behind by erosion and sediment deposition. 

My current research incorporates quantitative analysis of topography and absolute and relative age dating of glacial and landslide deposits. 

I've worked in the Pyrenees, the British Isles, Montenegro and Iceland. 


I'm a Senior Tutor in GIS in the Quaternary Environments and Geoarchaeology group at the University of Manchester.

I am also closely involved in Crysophere Research at Manchester, a cross-university research group which fosters collaboration between experts in glacial processes.
