I lecture in Marine Geology and Geophysics. I focus my research on seabed morphodynamics. I study sediment transport and bedform dynamics, more particularly the formation of amplified sediment waves, enhanced sediment mobility around seafloor objects and its link to sustainable management of engineering projects. I also study seabed morphodynamics linked to glacial dynamics, reconstructing the demise of marine-terminating ice streams from investigations of the seafloor, and understanding seabed habitat suitability on exposed seafloor when glaciers have retreated.
