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.
