I am a fluvial sedimentologist currently investigating Precambrian- to Palaeozoic- river morphodynamics in various areas including Arctic and Atlantic Canada, UK, and northern Europe. I am also interested in the study of extra-terrestrial and modern analogue modelling of pre-Silurian rivers. I have authored 27 peer-reviewed publications, four peer-reviewed government reports. I am a peer-reviewer for 13 journals, including Geology, Sedimentology, Palaeo3, Geological Magazine, and Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences.
