    Personal Statement

    I am a sedimentologist with expertise in deep-water clastic systems. My research interests lie in exploring the processes that underpin sediment-laden submarine flows and how we can link these processes to deposits in the geological record. My work attempts to bridge the gap between what we can model in the laboratory with what we know happens in the natural world. This involves conducting flume tank experiments and numerical models, and getting out in the field to examine deposits found in modern and ancient deep-water systems. This includes both onshore and offshore fieldwork. My research also has applications within the hydrocarbon sector, which means I often work closely with industry geoscientists.
