I lecture in Marine Geology and Geophysics. 

I study seabed morphodynamics around objects and its links to (1) sustainable management of engineering projects (2) glacial dynamics and (3) habitat suitability and the wider ecosystems.

I work in large projects supporting developing economic opportunities in Low Carbon, Energy and Environment (projects SEACAMS and SEEC) and I was Sêr Cymru NRN-LCEE Returning Fellow on seabed scour around seabed structures. I assess and predict seabed mobility in complex (palaeo)glaciated environments (NERC project NE/J009768/1), underpinned by more accurate modelling. My work underpins habitat maps in the Irish Sea (InterReg projects HabMap and MESH) and in polar regions (NERC project NE/P003087/1). I specialise in amplified sediment waves (EC Grant no. 228344) and accelerated seabed erosion around windfarms and cables (Supergen ORE Flexfund-EPSRC), with ecological implications (NERC project NE/X008886/1). My knowledge transfer projects have received funding from statutory advisers to UK Government, marine engineers and consultants, aggregate industry, marine renewable energy developers, offshore infrastructure connectors and coastline managers. 

I am Employability Officer and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Director for the department, and I sit on several external EDI committees. I work towards widening participation in environmental sciences (NERC funded project NE/W007649/1). I am Course Director for the Marine Environmental Studies Undergraduate Programme (soon to transform into "Marine Science & Conservation").  

I am Associate Editor Board member of Ocean Challenge, of Frontiers in Earth Science and of Cambridge Prisms: Coastal Futures. I lead a Fully Sponsored Open Access Project for topic collection on seabed morphodynamics in Geosciences (MDPI Journal), which offers funding for under-represented groups in marine geosciences.
