About Me

Me and my hatI’m a computational scientist at the University of York that builds and integrates software to solve and investigate environmental problems; past, present and future. I have a diverse research background that spans High Performance Computing, sedimentology, oceanography and palaeobiology.

My current research focus is on assessing the tsunami hazard to the UK from submarine slides in the Arctic and examining the environmental impact of wave and tidal energy devices. I’m also examining the physical oceanography of ancient epicontinental seas and how phylogenetic information can be integrated with environmental data.

I’m also a Fellow for the Software Sustainability Institute and I write open source software for use across all of my research strands. Find out more on the Software page.

PhD students:

I’m always happy to hear from potential PhD students with funding. See my research pages to see the kind of topics I can help with supervision.
