I am Associate Professor of Quaternary environmental change, and have a strong research emphasis on sea-level change. I have expertise in developing records of past sea level to understand the magnitude, timing and driving mechanisms of sea level changes over a range of timescales. My current research particularly focuses on sea level during interglacial periods, where I am aiming to establish reconstructions of sea-level change from temperate latitudes, which will in turn help improve predictions of long-term future coastal response and ice-sheet mass-balance changes. I am currently leading the European Research Council Starting Grant (€2 million) RISeR project, furthering my research in this area. Recently I have focused on submarine landscapes, conducting research with geophysical datasets and cores to better understand palaeo-landscapes, 3D-stratigraphy and sediment mobility, in particular to support the development of a sustainable offshore wind industry. I also have an interest in how palaeo landscapes act as carbon sinks and their potential for carbon release.
