Research

Ian is a Geomorphologist with over 35 years research experience working in the UK, Europe, the circum-Mediterranean region and, more recently, in South Africa. After graduating from the Universities of London (King's College) and Exeter, Ian has spent many years researching issues concerning land degradation, erosion, water quality and climate change. He has specialist interests and expertise in catchment process studies and in reconstructing environmental change from sedimentary archives contained in lakes and reservoirs. 

His current research focus is in South Africa where, with NERC, British Academy and South African Research Council funding, he has been monitoring erosion rates and exploring the potential to use a range of techniques (e.g. Sediment geochemistry, mineral magnetism, gamma emitting radionuclides) to reconstruct and interpret the history of land degradation from sediments deposited in farm reservoirs. Much of this research is collaborative and includes researchers from a range of UK (e.g. Aberdeen, Oxford, Sheffield) and overseas Universities (e.g Cape Town, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan and Rhodes). 

Ian has supervised 25 research students to completion working on a range of topics including dust provenancing in Amman, Jordan; reconstructing recent environmental change in the Peloponnese; sediment source tracing in lowland UK catchments; monitoring heavy metal contamination in urban rivers and saline incursion into coastal freshwater lagoons. 

He is currently supervising 5 PhD students at Northampton working on problems of sediment management in lowland UK catchments (3 students), an analysis of the fate of natural and man-made radionuclides in urban freshwater systems and developing resilience to climate change in Jordan.​
