My research interests lie in the application of remote sensing and GIS methods within the fields of glaciology and Quaternary environmental change, with particular focus upon the dimensions, dynamics and distribution of both modern- and palaeo-glaciers. I also have interest in applying remote sensing methods to the study of landscape evolution, particularly where glacial and volcanic processes have dominated.
