My core research interests lie in the area of long-term landscape evolution. I am particularly interested in studying the interactions between surface processes, tectonics and climate over a wide range of timescales using a combination of cutting edge isotope-based analytical techniques and numerical modelling of landscape evolution.
I have a strong record in numerical modelling and quantitative analytical approaches to understanding landscape evolution. I am experienced in all aspects of cosmogenic nuclide analysis having worked with both stable (Ne-21) and radionuclides (Be-10, Al-26).
