I have a new paper out this week on tropical river morphodynamics in the Philippines! (Free to access here https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1Yg8A,3sl3j79q until April 24th 2019, or here after https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0169555X19300212). This paper looks specifically at controls on channel migration rates along the Cagayan River on Luzon Island (sediment supply/climate) and also considers how the dynamics of tropical … More *New paper* out in Geomorphology on tropical river morphodynamics in the Philippines!
I have a new discussion paper available on ESurf: https://www.earth-surf-dynam-discuss.net/esurf-2017-73/ This is the final part of my PhD and looks at drivers of temporal variability in cosmogenic radionuclide concentrations in large Himalayan catchments. I try to relate this to how we should interpret catchment-averaged erosion rate data and whether this is fully appropriate to then use … More *New ESurf Discussion paper out*
Here’s a link to a short video about our work on the Karnali River in west Nepal: This is part of a larger NERC Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) project I was involved in earlier this year, which you can read more about here : http://distalnepal.wordpress.com/
When I speak to friends or family who don’t perhaps know what I actually do, I seem to get asked this question a lot. (Answer: It depends on your definition of a ‘real’ job.) So…I thought I’d make a couple of short films about some of my research to try and explain what it is … More “So when are you going to get a real job?”
The second paper from my PhD came out in Nature last week! Here’s a link to it: http://rdcu.be/rCWY Editor’s summary (which summarises the paper really nicely): “Understanding what happens to coarse gravel during riverine transport is important for forecasting the response of rivers to large sediment supplies triggered by earthquakes or storms. This paper finds … More *New paper* Abrasion-set limits on Himalayan gravel flux
It’ s been a pretty busy six months and given it’s EGU next week, I thought I’d stick a quick post up. After a great week at EGU in 2016, I decided to pop a couple of poster abstracts in for what I’m sure will be another top conference in Vienna. Drawing towards the end of … More EGU 2017
Another October, another trip to Nepal. This trip however, concludes my tour of the major tributaries of the Ganga River, as we are working along the Karnali River in west Nepal. Two weeks ago, the five of us left Edinburgh as part of a small project funded by a EPSRC Global Challenges Research Fund award to … More An English girl, an Irish girl and a Welsh girl walk into a (gravel) bar….
