Current research

I am actively working on the interactions and feedbacks between tectonics, climate and the geomorphology that they create. My particular study areas are orogenic plateaux (specifically the Turkish-Iranian and Tibetan plateaux) as they allow study of systems (mostly fluvial) that cross the boundary between two differring tectonic and climatic settings.

Research interests

  • Fluvial geomorphology
  • Tectonic geomorphology
  • GIS
  • Sedimentary petrography

Research groups

  • Palaeoclimate Research Group
  • Sedimentology Research Group
