Chris is a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Geography and Environmental Science, with in an interest in using remote sensing techniques for fluvial monitoring across a range of scales.
- Chris is currently investigating the possibility of extracting depth averaged sediment loads for global rivers from satellite imagery. The research involves using a mixture of in-situ measurements, acoustic techniques, and modelling to link variations in sediment flux to catchment properties. This can then be used to explore the drivers of global sediment flux to the oceans over time.
- His previous research focussed on the interactions between vegetation and flow, using novel UAV based sensing systems to extract vegetation structure and compare this to morphological change at a variety of scales.
Chris has taught on a variety of modules, with a focus on the implementation of GIS and Remote Sensing for environmental applications, alongside field techniques both in the UK and abroad.
