I joined SNS in Jan 2012 as a lecturer in Physical Geography, and became a Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography in Feb 2018. As a Geographer I've studied in a number of departments across the UK, starting off at Northumbria University (BSc) before going on to Durham University (MSc) and then completing my PhD at the University of Hull. I worked in industry before my undergraduate studies and following my Masters. My research interest lie in reconstructing fluvial histories, glacial sedimentology, and geoarchaeology. I am also interested in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, particularly within the GEES disciplines.
I work with colleagues in the School of Ocean Sciences and the School of History, Philosophy and Social Sciences on teaching and research, reflecting my wide interests.
