Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography, Manchester Metropolitan University

I am a Quaternary scientist with a particular interest in long-term environmental change and landscape processes.

My research examines the impacts of climate change on glacial activity and meltwater dynamics. I am especially interested in the ways that glacial and fluvial sedimentary records can be used to identify past environmental change and landscape evolution. My field sites include: Montenegro, Spain, West and East Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, and Norway.

My work in the Mediterranean focuses on river system response to climate change and glacial activity. This is developed in collaboration with researchers at the University of Manchester, Royal Holloway, University of London, Liverpool John Moores University, and the Open University.

In Greenland and Iceland, my research explores the impacts of Holocene and present-day climate change on ice cap dynamics, permafrost characteristics and meltwater systems. Some of these projects are funded by the EU-INTERACT Arctic research programme, and are being completed in collaboration with colleagues at Liverpool John Moores University, the University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, and CNRS Paris.
