Personal profile


I am a PhD student in Physical Geography at The University of Manchester. 

My research interests include glacial geomorphology, cosmogenic nuclide exposure dating and Quaternary environmental change. My research is primarily focussed on the extent and timing of glaciation in the Mediterranean mountains during the Late Pleistocene. 

I am currently working on projects in the Pindus Mountains of Greece; the Dinaric Alps of Montenegro; the Pyrenees of Spain / France; and the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland.
