I am interested in all hydrological and biogeochemical processes that occur within glacier and ice sheet systems and in their fore fields and which have a potential regional or global impact.
My research interests span three primary fields:
1) Determining the role of glaciers and ice sheets in regulating global biogeochemical cycles, including evaluating the impacts of nutrients/carbon exported from ice sheets upon marine productivity and the impact of methane emission from subglacial and permafrost wetlands upon the atmosphere;
2) Understanding water flow through cryospheric systems and the associated feedbacks with ice dynamics and glacial ecosystems; and
3) Development ...
I conducted my first degree (B.A., M.A.) in Physical Geography at the University of Cambridge, UK. I subsequently persued a PhD at the University of Bristol, undertaking at short post-doctoral research post at the University of Leeds in isotope geochemistry, before returning to Bristol to take up a tenured post at the Bristol Glaciology Centre. I recently stood down as the Head of the Graduate School and am now Impact Director in the School of Geographical Sciences.
