Research overview

My research focuses on the linkages between geomorphology, hydrology and ecology.  I am particularly interested in the following research areas;

  • The use of instream Natural Flood Management (NFM) interventions to reduce flood risk, including the use of environmental tracers to monitor the effectiveness of NFM techniques

  • The role of instream wood in the creation of hydraulic and geomorphic development and promotion of biogeochemical hotspots in improving river and ground water quality

  • The use of hydroecological evidence to improve water resource management policies

  • The influence of extreme hydrological events on geomorphology and ecology, including community and landform resilience and recovery
