Professor of Physical Geography, University of the Witwatersrand

I am a geoscientist with research interests in the spatial and temporal variability in morphosedimentary system responses to rapid hemispheric-scale climatic and environmental changes during the late Pleistocene and Holocene. I focus thematically on glaciers, coasts and mountains and their responses to past, present and future climate change. I focus geographically on the UK and Ireland, northwest USA, Australia, European Alps, New Zealand, Spain and now in southern Africa too. I supervise a number of graduate students on a range of pure and applied topics.
