As an applied geoscientist I use high resolution geophysical methods to study a range of geoscientific areas in marine and terrestrial settings. Over the past 10 yrs a large part of my work has been applied to archaeology, in particular pre-history and the reconstruction of past environments and landscapes. However, following the old maxim that the present is the key to the past I also am extremely interested in using applied geophysical techniques to understanding modern environments that are rapidly changing. See the blog for more about my work.

Research Overview:

Application of high resolution geophysical survey techniques for near surface investigations and the use of geophysics in a multi-disciplinary team approach to environmental problem solving.

http://geophysicistatlarge.blogspot.co.uk/

Specific focus on the fields of near surface, high resolution terrestrial geophysics (archaeology, palaeo-environmental reconstruction, groundwater investigations, contamination mapping, structural investigations, climate change impact) and marine, high resolution survey (palaeo-landscape reconstruction, ecosystem evaluation, resource mapping, sediment dynamics).  Development of multi-sensor equipment for environmental investigations with an emphasis on climate impact studies such as marine benthic mapping and glacier retreat in the maritime Arctic.  Recent archaeological research investigations include the use of multi-sensor techniques at iconic sites such Stonehenge and the World Heritage sites in Orkney.   Commercialization of applied geophysics for marine investigation of Special Areas of Conservation and offshore marine resource development both internationally and on the UK Continental Shelf.
