Research Interests

I am a marine geoscientist, interested in applications of ocean mapping methods and computational modelling. I use acoustic imaging to detect, quantify and understand change in anthropogenic, geomorphological, geoarchaeological and biophysical environments. A better understanding of these processes allows us to inform policy makers and develop mitigation strategies to minimise loss in the face of increasing natural and human forcing. Current and recent projects include: 

2021-2024: 'Unpath'd Waters': Marine and Maritime Collections in the UK
PI: B Sloane (Historic England). Co-Is Ulster University: W Forsythe and R Quinn 
Funding: AHRC, £2.9M 

2017-2019: Preservation and deterioration of historic shipwrecks
PI: D Gregory (National Museum of Denmark). Co-Is: G Normann and R Quinn 
Funding: Danish Ministry of Culture, 763k DKK

2012-15: Climate change, maritime and freshwater archaeology
PI: C Breen. Co-Is: W Forsythe and R Quinn 
Funding: NI Environment Agency, £390k

2011-13: Enabling Tidal Energy for Northern Ireland
PI: R Quinn. Co-Is: R Plets and K Westley
Funding: Invest NI, £10k

2011-14: Late Glacial Sea Level Minima in the Western British Isles 
PI: A Cooper. Co-Is: D Jackson and R Quinn 
Funding: NERC, £716k

Teaching Interests

I teach aspects of marine systems, remote sensing, GIS, spatial mapping and maths on the marine science, environmental science and geography degrees, and co-ordinate final year dissertations.
