As an applied physical geographer I use ice penetrating radar and remotely sensed imagery to comprehend and characterise the subglacial environment (morphology, geology and hydrology) and flow dynamics of ice streams in Antarctica. I am particularly interested in the topographic controls on ice flow and the entrainment and transportation of sediment through the glacial system.

I joined the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences in 2013 as a PhD student working on the NERC-funded project ‘A new approach to West Antarctic Ice Sheet evolution using blue-ice moraines on nunataks’. In 2017 I was appointed as a Vice Chancellors Research Fellow.
