 Sediment Dynamics and Morphodynamics of Large Alluvial Rivers under Changing Climate

I am currently working on the Sediment Transfer and Erosion in Large Alluvial Rivers – Source to Sink (STELAR – S2S) project. A collaborative project between the Universities of Southampton, Hull, Exeter and Illinois looking into the roll of climate and autogenic process on the delivery, erosion and transfer of sediment to the Mekong Delta. To find out more on this aspect of my research click here, or visit the STELAR-S2S website.

The Response of Incised Coastal Gullies to Future Climate Change

My PhD research at the University of Southampton looked into the effects of climate change and sea level rise on the evolution of a series of incised coastal gullies. This research involved developing models of coastal erosion which could be incorporated into Landscape Evolution Models, and the application of these models to understand the morphodynamic response of gully systems to projections of future climate change.

Channel Change in Large Rivers

I am interested in the response of channel width below tributary junctions, particularly in the world’s largest rivers. This research has published in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms (2011, 36: p.1563–1576. doi: 10.1002/esp.2165), in which the effects tributaries have on main-channel width are discussed.
