Rory teaches aspects of spatial mapping, GIS, underwater remote sensing and introductory maths on the environmental science and geography degree programmes. He also co-ordinates final year dissertations across the School of Geography and Environmental Sciences.
Rory is a marine geoscientist, interested in applications of ocean mapping methods. His research focuses on detecting, quantifying and understanding change in past and present geomorphological, archaeological and bio-physical environments. A better understanding of these processes allows us to inform policy makers and develop effective mitigation strategies to minimise loss in the face of increasing natural and human forcing.
