About me

I am a Senior Lecturer in Geology at UWE Bristol. My current research is based in Wales and India developing an understanding for different bars in fluvial systems. I also consider how the fluvial systems link and are influenced by tectonics and the provenance of the fluvial system. My research is also slowly moving into microplastics and how the transfer of microplastics from the channel system to the floodplain occurs through time. I am also very interested in where microplastics are stored within the fluvial channel and floodplain. 

At UWE I teach sedimentary processes and environments, applied sedimentology, structural geology to geologists. I also teach on multiple fieldtrips across the geology and civil engineering degrees, which I am Programme Leader for. 

I was the secretary for the British Sedimentological Research Group (BSRG) from December 2019 until December 2021 and I'm very passionate about Geoscience for the Future: https://geoscienceforthefuture.com/.

Before taking up my post here I was a teaching fellow at the Unversity of Birmingham where I undertook teaching across all UG levels and across multiple geography and geology programmes. While undertaking this post I was completing my Ph.D. in sedimentary geology at Keele University. I also hold an MSc in Structural geology and geophysics and a BSc in geology with geography.
