Lecturer in Exploration Geophysics, University of Leeds

I am a near-surface geophysicist, specialising in the application of seismic and GPR techniques to the quantiative analysis of the subsurface. My main focus is in the cryosphere - specifically measuring the physical state of glaciers and ice bodies - but I also work with engineering and archaeological-type targets. I am a versatile field geophysicist, having performed surveys in the Arabian desert, the Burmese jungle and on glaciers at both poles! New branches of research are in automated classification of GPR images, with Leeds' Computer Scientists, and applying GPR methods to image the burrows of moles and meerkats.

I am the principal investigator on a NERC Urgency Grant, monitoring with combined geophysical and satellite methods the response of the Larsen C Ice Shelf to July's iceberg calving event.
