Current Research

My research focusses primarily on the frequency and triggering mechanisms of submarine mass movements and the hazard posed by these events.

I use a combination of field measurements, damage to seafloor infrastructure, sediment core deposits and statistics to understand the role of individual triggering mechanisms, such as earthquakes and rapid sedimentation, in different settings around the world across different time periods.

Currently, my research focusses on the relationship between ice sheets and different types of submarine mass movements during the Quaternary. From this analysis we hope to better understand how ice sheets impact upon continental margin envolution.
