Biography

I am a physical geographer interested in reconstructing environmental change, with particular expertise in coasts and sea-level change. My recent research is focussed on relative sea-level changes in western Scotland since the last glaciation, using fieldwork and laboratory analysis to provide new constraints of environmental and relative sea-level change.
