Amy Nettley
PhD student


I completed a 4yr undergraduate degree in Geography and Spanish with a year spent studying at the Universidad de Zaragoza in Spain. After my time in Spain I developed an interest in associations of space, place and identity and wrote my undergraduate dissertation on “National Identity in Spain: Space, Place and Identity in Pedro Almodóvars films”. Returning for my final year, a renewed interest in the physical sciences after completing a course on climate change led by a researcher from the British Antarctic Survey, I decided to undertake an MSc in Climate Change and Risk Management which culminated in my MSc thesis entitled “ Visualising the Future: Using Terrestrial Laser Scanning to Communicate Climate Change”.

Broad research interests:

  • Manipulation and application of terrestrial laser scan data ‘beyond the point cloud’
  • The success of using multi-scale models to communicate climate change
  • Developing innovative ways of engaging with the local community and decision-makers
  • Helping people to reassess and reconsider their emotional attachments to sites of heritage
