BSc (Hons) in Geography Edge Hill University (2014)


My research interests concern coastal geomorphology, aeolian processes and foredune evolution. More specifically, the nature of beach-dune sediment exchanges at eroding coastlines.

Having completed my BSc in Geography in 2014, I have returned to Edge Hill as a Postgraduate Researcher and Graduate Teaching Assistant. My PhD project, registered with Edge Hill in January, 2016, examines dune sediment budgets, characterises transport events and examines the role played by blowouts in foredune evolution.

Research prior to this focused on changes in the levels of bare sand on the Sefton coast, how these changes may relate to climatic and anthropogenic factors, along with potential implications to future management practices.
