Research Projects

Much of my career to date has been devoted to developing instrumentation, computational and analytical tools which allow measurements of sediment at unprecedented scales and resolutions. In the coming years, methods for measuring the reflectance and scattering of light and/or sound to remotely characterize terrestrial and underwater surfaces and infer sediment properties will continue to mature. I wish to continue to be at the forefront of this nascent science. These techniques have opened up the possibility of mapping sedimentary deposits, surface roughness and depositional sedimentary environments over large areas, and monitoring those areas in time. Compared to a few discrete samples in locations accessed physically, this will provide more fundamental insight into geomorphological and ecological processes, by massively expanding the scope of what time and spatial scales and resolutions can be monitored, and could significantly alter the way in which environmental research is carried out.
