Teaching Interests

Paul teaches remote sensing and physical geography on a range of undergraduate modules on the geography and environmental science degree programmes and delivers remote sensing on the MSc in GIS.

Research Interests

Paul is a Quaternary glaciologist who investigates glacial landscapes in both terrestrial and marine environments to reconstruct past ice sheet behaviour. Understanding how ice sheets operate over long-time scales provides critical information on the global climate system and the processes of climate change.  This research area requires a multidisciplinary approach and Paul uses a variety of cutting edge techniques to investigate glacial landscapes that includes satellite remote sensing, GIS, marine geophysics and cosmogenic nuclide and radiocarbon dating to work out what was happening during the last Ice Age and to help age constrain glacial events.  Paul is also the Pathway Leader for the MRes in Environmental Sciences.
