Summary

I am a fluvial geomorphologist interested in understanding how meandering rivers evolve through time. I am particularly interested in the interaction between channel bars and flow hydrodynamics that combine to change the shape of meanders. I mainly employ the use of remote sensing to monitor changes in meander form through time and combine these observations with measurements from the field.

I have interests in understanding how water moves through the landscape and how this may alter in response to climatic and land use changes in the future. I am currently exploring how changes in land management may impact the routing of water and how this may provide a range of benefits for society, the environment, and the economy.
