My specific areas of research are hydromorphology including sediment transport dynamics, catchment/ reach connectivity, ecohydraulics and through collaboration with environmental consultancies, the Environment Agency, regional River/wildlife Trusts along with the River Restoration Centre, I have helped to established post project monitoring to be an integral part of river restoration projects. Furthermore through the newly established River Restoration Inventory best practice examples can be disseminated.

My more recent research is utilising UAVs, Terrestrial and Aerial Laser Scanning (TLS and ALS) to map and model spatial and temporal variations in hydraulics, biotopes, fluvial habitats and flooding in the UK and in Southern Africa
