About me:

I received my undergraduate degree in Geography from the University of Southampton in 2009. My undergraduate dissertation looked into the occurrence of obtuse angled tributary confluences throughout the Lower Mekong Basin. I began my PhD research in January 2009 in the School of Geography, University of Southampton. I successfully defended my PhD in December 2012. From December 2012 to December 2015 I have worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Southampton, working on the NERC funded STELAR-S2S project. From December 2015 to August 2016 I was employed on a fixed-term contract as a Lecturer in Geomoprhology at the Unviersity of Southampton. Since September 2016 I have been employed as a research fellow in earth surface processes and sedimentology with Geography and Geology at the University of Hull.

I have keen research interest in the interaction between coastal and terrestrial processes, landscape evolution over geological- and meso- (~100 year) scale time frames, fluvial geomorphology and the use of high resolution laser-scan data to detect geomorphological change over varying temporal and spatial scales.
