Overview

Hello, I am a geomorphologist with a broad interest in landscape-scale interactions between plants/animals/humans and geomorphic processes.

I completed my BSc in Earth Science at the University College Cork in 2000 after which I undertook a PhD at the University of Glasgow, graduating in 2005. I then spent 2-years as a postdoctoral researcher at St. Anthony Falls laboratory in Minnesota, USA.

I am a senior lecturer working at the University of Exeter since 2007.

BSc (UCC, Ireland),
PhD (Glasgow, Scotland)

Research interests

My research interests lie in the broad field of landscape response to perturbations over a wide range of time scales. My research encompasses topics as diverse as the growth of mountains ranges over millions of years and late Holocene catchment response to a) storm track changes linked to the North Atlantic Oscillation, and b) land use change in French Alps. I am very interested in the theory of complexity science and how it might inform prediction of landscape responses to perturbations. Methodologically, I have applied a wide range of field based techniques such as cosmogenic nuclide erosion rate estimation and optically stimulated luminescence depositional age measurement together with advanced statistical modelling to investigate landscape development.

Research projects

Much of my current research hinges on the realisation that life and landscape are inextricably linked though feedbacks across a range of scales. The landscape in which most of us live arose not through the incremental working of abiotic physical processes but through the interaction and modification of these processes by ‘life’, be it human or otherwise. I am currently leading a project that aims to place human activities such as mining and agriculture into the geomorphic paradigm of process and form. If successful this project will provide a framework for understanding and predicting landscape development in response to land use change over decades to centauries.
