Personal profile

Research interests

My research is focused on the interactions between materials, environmental processes, landforms and infrastructure within challenging environments, with particular emphasis on slope behaviour.

My main area of expertise is on investigating the mechanisms that operate in coastal environments and how they interact to shape landscapes, habitats and coastal communities. I have developed and applied approaches to try and better understand slope systems and mitigate their impacts within a wide range of settings, from automatic detection of debris-flows on mountains slopes to the globally significant controls on the rocky coasts of Svalbard and permafrost thaw complexes in Canada. This research informs my teaching on surveying skills, change detection and analysis, engineering geology, geotechnics and slope hazards and management and enables me to work with an exciting and inpiring community spanning academia, government agencies and industry.
