I currently work as a PDRA in the MAGIC group at BAS on a NERC funded project using the archive of historic aerial photography to investigatethe spatial and temporal distribution of twentieth century Antarctic Peninusla glacier mass balance change and its drivers. This is working with colleagues at BAS and at Newcastle University.

I completed my BSc (Hons) Geography at Durham University before undertaking an MSc in Geography and Surveying at the University of Otago, New Zealand specialising in photogrammetry. Following this I returned to the UK and completed my PhD at the University of Exeter using a combination of field work, physical modelling and numerical modelling to investigate the influence of internal process form relationship in driving change on alluvial fans. I was also employed as an associate research fellow and a teaching fellow during my time at the University of Exeter. After completion of my PhD, I worked as a lecturer (teaching and scholarship) at the University of Dundee, before moving to the University of Hull as a PDRA, exploring the effect of vegetation on the development of alluvial fans using the Total Environment Simulator at the Deep experimental facility in Hull.
