My research focuses on quantifying environmental changes in mountain regions using a combination of remote and in-situ methods, and data-modelling the processes driving these changes. In particular, I am interested in high-elevation processes relating to glaciers, snow, hillslopes and rivers, and how they impact on human populations. I have focussed in particular on the controls of glacial lake formation, and characterised the impacts of outburst floods. Most recently I have worked to link physical changes in the mountain regions with social, economic and health impacts for communities living in downstream areas.
