Sally is interested in coastal geomorphology, the impacts of sea-level rise at local and global scales and climate change adaptation. She is a Senior Research Fellow in the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment and part of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

Sally researches:

Impacts and costs of sea-level rise and climate change;
Adaptation to sea-level rise and coastal change;
Shoreline management policies;
Physical and human effects of geomorphic change on the coast, and management response;
Bay formation;
Soft cliff morphology and retreat;
Impacts of coastal structures on adjacent coastlines.

Her post-doctoral research has covered the impacts of sea-level rise, mostly at European and global scale. She has also undertaken case studies in Africa, Maldives and India/Bangladesh.
