I manage the ERC-funded GlobalMass and Deep Purple projects. 

GlobalMass aims to rigorously combine satellite and in-situ data related to different aspects of the sea level budget, so that observed sea level rise can be attributed to its component parts. Visit the project website ( for more details.

Deep Purple will investigate the physical and microbial processes which darken the Greenland Ice Sheet and accelerate sea level rise. Visit the project website for more details.

I completed a PhD in the development of remote sensing methods for measurement of large, gravel-bed, braided rivers at Cambridge University in 2001, and have subsequently managed and delivered various environmental projects in the private, public and research sectors.
