Dr Christopher Hackney

Research Assistant / Post-doctoral representative on the School Research Committee

Summary

Christopher Hackney is a post-doctoral research associate in earth surface processes and sedimentology. His research focuses on the processes and mechanisms of sediment transport, erosion and the subsequent morphodynamics of large river and deltaic systems. From 2013 to 2015, Christopher was the post-doctoral researcher on a NERC-funded project investigating sediment transport, erosion and deposition in the one of the World's largest rivers, the Mekong. He obtained his PhD from the University of Southampton in 2013 for a project focused on the numerical modelling of incised coastal gullies and the impact of their evolution on climate change and sea-level rise.
