Personal profile

Research interests

As an applied physical geographer I use ice penetrating radar and remotely sensed imagery to comprehend and characterise the subglacial environment (morphology, geology and hydrology) and flow dynamics of ice streams in Antarctica. I am particularly interested in the topographic controls on ice flow and the entrainment and transportation of sediment through the glacial system.

Biography

Senior Lecturer in Extreme Envronments within the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences at Northumbria University.

As an applied physical geographer I use ice penetrating radar and remotely sensed imagery to comprehend and characterise the subglacial environment (morphology, geology and hydrology) and flow dynamics of ice streams in Antarctica. I am particularly interested in the topographic controls on ice flow and the entrainment and transportation of sediment through the glacial system.

I am passionate about education and outreach. I develop and teach on various undergraduate modules, focussing on ice, climate, geology and science communication and I supervise research projects at all levels (undergraduate, masters and PhD). I work with the faculty education and outreach team NUSTEM to develop effective outreach initiatives for the wider public.
