Research interests

My primary research interests include North Atlantic palaeoclimate reconstructed from biological and geochemical proxy data and marine sedimentology focussing on submarine mass flow deposits. My previous work has focussed on Pleistocene sedimentation in the Rockall Trough and palaeoglaciology and glacial geomorphology in southwest Ireland.

My current research is focussed on the timing of submarine landslides in the Iberian Abyssal Plain (IAP), off the coast of Portugal. Landslides documented in a number of deep-sea basins offshore Portugal have been shown to respond in the long-term to climate dynamics, but also to past earthquakes. This research aims to clarify the various controls on the observed landslide events by comparing their frequency with longer term climatic variability, and to establish whether any overarching palaeoseismic influence exists from the Azores-Gibraltar boundary to the South.
