I completed my BSc and PhD in the Department of Geography at Durham University. My research involved investigating flow-vegetation interactions in rivers. I applied remote sensing techniques (including Terrestrial Laser Scanning, TLS) and numerical modelling approaches (including Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD) to improve the process-understanding.

Since then I have worked in industry as a hydraulic modeller on a range of flood-risk related projects for Mott MacDonald in Leeds, before I joined the University of Manchester as a Lecturer in Physical Geography.

I have recently joined the University of Glasgow as a Fluvial Geomorphology Research Associate working on a NERC-funded project: “Catchment susceptibility to hydrometeorological events: sediment flux and geomorphic change as drivers of flood risk in the Philippines”.
