I am a principal lecturer in applied geomorphology and remote sensing and I manage the MSc in Crisis and Disaster Management. My career started at Stirling University (Scotland), examining the geomorphology of the Sierra Leone diamondfields. I have extensive experience of using geomorphology and remote sensing to map geohazards and natural resources, consulting for BP Minerals International, Rio Tinto, Pioneer Goldfields, Golden Star Resources and NorWest Resources, as well as the Environment Agency and the overseas development agencies of Canada (CIDA), Germany (GTZ) and Japan (JICA).
Current interests focus on low-cost approaches to using satellite imagery and GIS for assessing hazards, vulnerability and risk, as well as geoinformatic technology transfer and capacity building in developing countries. Ongoing research projects are in SE Spain and the Caribbean.
With GRSG and European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) colleagues, I have helped to organise a number of international conferences and workshops on applied remote sensing: mapping hazardous terrain (2004), volcanic hazards (2005); lowland geohazards (2006), Earth resources (exploration, extraction & environmental impacts), upland geohazards (2007) and issues with developing countries (2007).
