My interest in the Earth Sciences lies in developing proxy records of environmental change preserved in sediments. I use these proxy records to better understand high magnitude, low frequency geomorphic events, and how mountain landscapes respond to them over timeframes beyond human observation. My current research activity is focused on large earthquakes and storms and includes projects on:

- the earthquake behaviour of, and hazard(s) posed by, plate boundary faults;
- storm frequency and its drivers, and;
- the landscape responses of mountain systems to seismic shaking and storms.
