Senior Lecturer, University of Leicester

I am a physical geographer with research interests in arid environments, environmental change and geochronology (particularly Luminescence Dating methods).

My first degree was in Physical Geography (Sheffield 2000) and I obtained a PhD (Sheffield 2004) on Late Quaternary palaeoenvironments in southern Africa.

I was appointed as a lecturer at the University of Leicester in 2006 and have since worked on a variety of projects variously concerning (palaeo)ecology, palaeoclimatology, coastal and dryland landscape evolution, optically stimulated luminescence dating and the archaeological record of southern Africa.

I direct the University of Leicester Luminescence Dating facility in the School of Geography, Geology and the Environment.
