I am a Lecturer in Environmental Change at the University of Liverpool where I deliver a range of physical geography courses, and supervise undergraduate and masters projects. I completed my PhD at the University of Oxford in the School of Geography and the Environment. I have a MSc in Quaternary Science from Royal Holloway, University of London and a BSc in Geography and Environmental Management from University of the West of England.
Most of my research investigates Quaternary loess sequences, though I am particularly interest in reconstructing where the sediment came from, how it was transported, and when it was deposited. I also study links between loess development, past climates, and past environments. To achieve this most of my work employs geochemical and geochronological approaches. Check out the research and publications sections to find out more about my work.
Outside research and teaching I am the of Secretary of the INQUA Loess Focus Group, working on bringing the scientific loess community together.
