Research Interests

My research is primarily focused on the mapping and modelling of landslide hazard and risk and how these change through the landscape and through time, especially after large triggers such as earthquakes. Strong local gradients in patterns of hazard from the remobilisation of landslide sediments and spatial patterns in settlement overlay to create footprints of risk. These risk footprints have been shown to change through time and highlight increasing concentrations in some landscape positions. 


In parallel to the above research, we are also using and developing participatory and collaborative mapping techniques to allow and facilitate the coproduction of these hazard and risk data with the communities living in these mountain environments.
