Research interests

Derek's research efforts have a general focus on coastal environmental change (morphodynamics and geomorphology) at a number of time and space scales.

These efforts link into themes such as climate change impacts, its associated sea level rise and increased storminess on coastlines.

Ultimately much of the work Derek has undertaken helps in the development of responses to climate change and pressures on natural beach and dune systems globally.

Specifically, the main focus of his work examines wind-blown processes and modelling of airflow in a variety of planetary (Earth and Mars) environments in temperate through to arid zones.
