Personal profile

Research expertise

Marine geomorphology using multibeam mapping both vessel based and from autonomous underwater vehicles. Marine current-influenced sedimentation, fjords and shelf sea sediment as archives of climate change. Much of this work has been based in mid-high latitude seas, notably the Antarctic and the Fram Strait region of the Arctic.

BSc (Hons) Marine Science undergraduate programme leader since 2016. Developed and delivered the BSc (Hons) Marine Science degree since 1998. Supervised 12 undergraduate geoscience projects. Director of Studies for five PhD students.

Head of Biogeochemistry and Earth Sciences Department 2009-2015.

Published 91 research outputs. Grant capture from EU, NERC and diverse commercial projects.
