Lecturer Geography and Planning


Personal Statement

I am a lecturer in Coastal Dynamics in the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Liverpool. I have been a postdoctoral research at Bangor University and Edinburgh University. I received my PhD and MSc from University of Liverpool, and my BSc from University of Nottingham.

My research interests are focused on coastal and estuarine processes & dynamics, coastal hazards, and coastal resilience. My research is targeted towards better understanding the drivers of coastal hazards for improved awareness, hazard mitigation, and public safety. I use process-based and shoreline response numerical models to simulate storm-driven hazard events, and data analytics to better understand how drivers coincide and interact. I am particularly interested in coastal hazards in estuaries, which experience drivers of flooding from both the land and the sea, under present and future climate conditions. My research engages stakeholders and end-users by providing essential information from model sensitivity tests and ‘what if’ scenarios to inform hazard assessments and alternative management scenarios.
