I am interested in ice sheets and glaciers, and their interaction with climate. I use traces left by the action of ice movement preserved in the landscape to reconstruct the past size, movement and dynamics of former ice masses.

My research to date has included: geomorphological mapping of glacial landforms across Britain, primarily using digital elevation models but also in the field; identification of glacial trimlines in south-east Greenland using multi-spectral satellite imagery; and 10Be exposure dating of glacially streamlined surfaces and erratic boulders in Greenland and Norway to determine ice-retreat rates.
