How do river basin characteristics influence flood wave propagation?
I obtained a First Class Honours degree for an integrated Master’s Degree at Durham University. For my dissertation I looked into how structures on floodplains were represented in a 2D flood inundation model, and how this would influence outputted results. I then undertook a pivoting analysis to understand bedrock river morphology and alluvial cover influence on gravel entrainment. Within the geography department at Durham I also investigated loess landslides and geomorphological indicators which could determine their age when utilising satellite imagery.
W.A. Moyes Prize (2017) for exemplary fieldwork

Vice-Chancellor’s Academic Excellence Scholarship (2017-2018)
Currently interested in fluvial geomorphology and the influence of climate change upon future flooding events globally. I’m also looking into the quantification of Natural Flood Management within the UK on a watershed scale. I have an active interest in the development of Hydro-JULES.
