    About

    Personal Statement

    I am a coastal geomorphologist with a keen interest in reconstructing system response to changes in sea-level, sediment supply and extreme events (storms and high rainfall). Most of my work focuses on sedimentary archives of environmental change, and what can be determined from these archives in terms of environmental forcing, response and recovery, human impact and sediment provenance. My work also links to the application of modelling and monitoring to detect, characterize and predict coastal change for climate change adaptation.

    I also co-ordinate a series of projects that are supporting the delivery of clean growth ambitions in Liverpool City Region. This centres on the deployment of European Regional Developnment funds in facilitating exciting collaborations across the University of Liverpool and SMEs in the NW and in the Maritime Sector.
