My main research area was the tectonics of the Gulf of Corinth rift, Greece with a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the early stages of continental rifting.  I also have interest in Quaternary palaeoclimate in the UK and east Mediterranean. 

My main responsibilities are teaching across a range of Earth Sciences modules and developing initiatives to support and enhance student employability, both during their time at UEA and on graduation.
