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.
