I study how landscapes are shaped by climate and tectonics over geological timescales. Much of this work applies cosmogenic radionuclides and computational modelling to sedimentary environments with the aim to gauge rates of erosion, transport and deposition. There are four main themes:

  • Glacial & postglacial landscapes (Scotland, Scandinavia, Greenland)
  • River processes & dynamics (arid & tropical Australia, Scotland, Scandinavia)
  • Extreme events (central Australia, Siberia, Nepalese Himalaya)
  • Desert palaeoenvironments (central Australia, Egypt's Eastern Desert, Bolivian Altiplano)
