Personal profile

Overview

Personal webpage | Google Scholar | Twitter

I am a Physical Geographer and Quaternary Scientist interested in how changing climate affected the timing and nature of glacier and ice sheet activity over the last 2.5 million years.

My research involves using geomorphology left behind by ancient ice sheets and glaciers to reconstruct their former advance and retreat. I use geochronological techniques to reconstruct rates of past ice activity in Patagonia, western North America, Antarctica and Greenland.

I am part of the Quaternary Environments and Geoarchaeology research group.
