Research interests

Research My primary interests are in the geomorphic processes that shape the earth’s surface. I work at a range of temporal and spatial scales from detailed examinations of weathering processes on rock samples in the laboratory to the monitoring of rock slope adjustment in high alpine valleys. The theme of my research is erosion and sedimentation processes such as paraglacial adjustment due to deglaciation and periglacial rock slope and hillslope processes influenced by climate change. I use a spectrum of research approaches, including geomorphological, geophysical and geotechnical field observations, physical modelling in laboratories, and development of theoretical and physical models.

Research Interests:

  • Paraglacial Processes
  • Periglacial Rock stability
  • Feedbacks between vegetation and solifluction
  • Refraction Seismics in Permafrost Studies
