Biography

While studying for a degree in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at the University of Cambridge, I was lucky enough to go on a trip to Iceland to research medieval Icelandic folk belief. While I was there I met my first glacier (and my first active glacial processes), and an abiding fascination with the physical landscape was born. I subsequently embarked on a BSc(hons) in Geology at the Open University (graduated 2009), then decamped to New Zealand for a PhD at the University of Otago (graduated 2014), where I used palaeomagnetic, environmental magnetic, sedimentological and palaeobotanical techniques to reconstruct aspects of climate and environment from a remarkable ancient lake deposit. After a brief stint in industry, I was appointed Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer in Earth Science at the University of Waikato, New Zealand, and joined the University of Huddersfield as a Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography in 2018.

My research is focused on using sedimentological indicators (grain size, grain shape, mineralogy, magnetic properties) to understand Earth surface processes in the present and the past. I work mainly with terrestrial deposits (lacustrine sediments, speleothems, aeolian deposits), with occasional side-trips into estuarine and coastal shelf sediments. I continue to be fascinated by the physical landscape and welcome enquiries from aspiring postgraduate students with similar interests.
