My main research area is Cenozoic landscape evolution and landscape evolution and denudation over thousands to millions of years, on both passive continental margins and in active mountain belts. The main techniques that my PhD students, post-docs and I currently use are cosmogenic nuclide analysis, various morphometric analyses, and, more recently, OSL analyses (with Professor David Sanderson at the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre [SUERC]); we are moving into the area of meteoric cosmogenic 10Be (led by the PhD work of Eric Portenga, and in collaboration with SUERC's Dr Dylan Rood). We have developed novel applications cosmogenic nuclide analysis, including using PDFs of single-grain cosmogenic 21Ne concentrations in sediments to infer catchment morphology and processes (with Professor Fin Stuart, SUERC), and in situ 14C in quartz (with Professor Gordon Cook, SUERC). It is clear that applications of all these analytical techniques are collaborative with SUERC. Recent funding for this research has come from NERC, the Scottish Funding Council and the European Commission.

Current work is focused on the ways in which bedrock rivers and the landscape respond to rock uplift. A major focus is using the glacio-isostatic rebound of northern Britain to test hypotheses concerning knickpoint retreat in response to rock uplift. We find that knickpoint retreat scales closely to catchment area (a surrogate for water and sediment discharge) and that this scaling is not influenced by rock type or structure.

Lithology is influential in situations of low stream power (i.e., low discharges and/or low stream gradients) such as in the post-orogenic settings of interior SE Australia. Knickpoints in such post-orogenic settings, driven by denudational isostatic rebound, readily propagate upstream until they encounter resistant lithologies, where the knickpoints 'stall'. In those situations, the catchment areas above the knickpoints become 'detached' from the base-level signal, meaning in turn that catchment relief must be increasing.

I also have on ongoing geoarchaeological interests.  I have worked in Thailand and Cambodia with large archaeological teams, providing the landscape and environmental contexts for the archaeological findings.  I am currently developing work on the geoarchaeology and chronology of lime-buring kilns in Scotland.

Biography

I am a geomorphologist. My PhD, on the evolution of the SE Australian high elevation passive continental margin, is from the School of Earth Sciences at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, which also awarded me a DSc in 2009. I came to Glasgow in 1998 to take up the Chair of Geography, after nine years at Monash University in Melbourne. For the last seven years in Melbourne, I was the Director of Monash's Graduate School of Environmental Science.

I was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2004, and a Fellow of the Geological Society of America in 2011.

Nine PhDs and one research MSc supervised to completion in 14 years in Glasgow
Current students:
  • Réka-Hajnalka Fülöp (PhD candidate): development and application of in situ cosmogenic 14C analysis in quartz
  • Katie Whitbread (PhD candidate): post-glacial bedrock rivers - rates and styles of adjustment
  • Eric Portenga (PhD candidate): the age(s) and source(s) of post-settlement alluvium ('post-contact sediment') in inland SE Australia (joint PhD with Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia)

Throughout my time in Glasgow, I have taught at all levels of the Earth Sciences and Geography degrees, and I continue to do so.  I also teach one seminar per semester on 'Science and Natural History' in the Scottish Enlightenment course for Principia Consortium students from the US, run by the School of Critical Studies.  I have several times been School Graduate Convener and I currently administer the School's new taught MSc in Aquatic Sciences.
