Research Interests

I am a physical marine scientist focused on the coast and nearshore, including oceanography, sediment transport and geomorphology. I work in a range of marine environments, on a spectrum of spatial (mm to 1000’s of km) and temporal (s to decades) scales, including in estuaries, open coast beaches, coral reefs and rock coasts. I use a range of techniques such as in situ field measurements, combined with remote sensing techniques (e.g., video) and numerical hydrodynamic and morphodynamic modelling to understand relationships between meteorological, hydrodynamic, and geological processes. I also have a strong track recovery in community education and engagement, including mainstream media such as BBC Coast New Zealand.  I am a founding committee member of Women in Coastal Geoscience and Engineering and Associate Editor for Anthropocene Coasts.
