Personal profile

Biography

I am a geomorphologist with research interests in coastal landforms and morphological behaviour at timescales ranging from seasons to millennia.  I also apply that understanding to the practicalities of coastal management, especially in the area of climate change adaptation.

I use field mapping, coring, seismic stratigraphy, ground-penetrating radar and historical records (maps and air photos) to assess the record of coastal change and am interested in the role of secular changes in climate and sea level, as well as episodic changes (storms and tsunami) as drivers of change.  I have a particular interest in the role of geological parameters as constraints on coastal behaviour.
