Research interests

Kyle is interested in inter-disciplinary research examining the influence of calcium carbonate-producing biological communities on coastal landform morphology within tropical and temperate marine systems. Previously, whilst at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, he examined the role of biogenic shell material from bivalve populations on ebb-tidal delta morphological stability and was later part of collaborative team which estimated the growth rate and generated a stock assessment of an important “kaimoana” (seafood) species. Within a tropical setting, his work focuses on the role of reef ecology on reef geomorphic development and the construction and maintenance of reef sedimentary landforms (e.g. reef islands).
