I am interested in the relationship between ice sheets, sea-level and the solid earth in many environments and time periods. This includes the geological and instrumental evidence for changes in ice and sea-level, and the geophysical processes influencing both. I am part of the ARC's glacier research group, and have a strong interest in science communication and outreach.
Current Research Projects
- Reconstructing ice sheet history at sites on the margin of the East Antarctic ice sheet, using evidence from glacial geology and relative sea-level change
- Holocene sea-level change in New Zealand
- Investigating the isostatic effects of ice- and sea-level oscillations on sedimentary basins Current global sea-level change and regional variation due to ice sheet mass balance.
