Biography

1994-97   PhD Marine Geophysics, University of Southampton
1993-94   MSc Geophysics, Durham University
1989-93   BSc Geology, University College Cork

Research Interests

I am a marine geoscientist, interested in applications of acoustic remote sensing and computational modelling. My research focuses on detecting, quantifying and understanding change in geomorphological, geoarchaeological and biophysical environments. A better understanding of these processes allows us to inform policy makers and develop effective mitigation strategies to minimise loss in the face of increasing natural and human forcing.
