Glacial-fluvial sediment transfer
I am interested in monitoring and modelling the hydrology of glaciers and glacierised catchments. In particular, I am interested in the the hydrological response of high-latitude catchments and ice masses to meteorological forcing, at melt season to multi-decadal time scales, and at point to synoptic spatial scales. I am further interested in fluvial sediment transfer and the physical denudation of glacierised catchments, in water and sediment budgeting and in the statistical modelling of hydrometeorological and water quality time series.
