His main research interests focus broadly on high latitude/altitude settings. This work typically focuses on integrating geomorphological and stratigraphic information from offshore 3D and 2D seismic data, borehole/core data, and remote sensing of land areas.
This holistic approach allows us to better understand past environmental changes, their causes, and their potential as analogues for contemporary and future change. I also research the subsurface with a particular emphasis on fluid flow and the potential implications for carbon sequestration.
