Research summary

I am interested in geomorphology, especially land surface processes, and now focusing on river longitudinal profile shapes across climate zones globally.

Climate is understood to be a first-order control on topographic evolution of drainage basins through rainfall, runoff, and erosion processes. However, the expression of climate is challenging to generalise due to limited datasets that quantify topographic metrics in drainage basins around the globe and disturbances of environmental factors. My PhD is aimed at addressing this gap and identifying climatic controls on river longitudinal profiles through the creation of a new, global dataset. The current specific objectives are to: (1 ...
