I completed my first degree in Geology at Kingston University in 1995
before moving to Bournemouth University and completing my MSc in Coastal
Zone Management in 1996. After a brief hiatus I moved to Birkbeck College
(University of London) to work on the Analysis of Coastal Change along
the Suffolk Coast (NERC/CASE with Environment Agency), being awarded
my PhD in 2003. I have worked as a River Habitat Surveyor for the IFE
River Lab (CEH), a Research Technician at Birkbeck, a Scientific Officer
at CEH Dorset and Visiting Lecturer at Bournemouth (MSc Coastal Zone
Management, EGS Coastal Processes and Systems, EGS Coastal Management
and Analysis, EGS Research Methods). I took up post as Demonstrator
(Fieldwork) at Bournemouth University in July 2006.
My current research interests include investigating the internal structure
of Chesil Beach, Dorset, using ground penetrating RADAR, and the monitoring
of landslide systems using DGPS.
