Research Interests

  • Tropical Coastal Geomorphology
    The main focus of my research is the effects of hydrodynamics, sea level changes, and sediment movements on coastal geomorphology, with a particular focus on tropical and subtropical environments. This includes a range of topics from shelf wave transformation and coastal response to multidecadal shoreline adjustments and beach change.
  • Nearshore Waves
    My research includes the analysis of ocean waves across the continental shelf towards the coast. This work involves the combined use of observational datasets (both in situ and via Earth observation data) and numerical modelling to better understand the movement of waves for the purposes of assessing coastal exposure and changes in geomorphology.
