  • BA (Hons) Geography, Oxford University

Administration

Ian Livingstone is Professor of Physical Geography in the School of Science and Technology. He is currently seconded for 0.8 of his time as head of the University's Graduate School.

Teaching

Ian teaches on the following modules:

  • ENV3110 - Dryland Environments
  • ENV3126 - Dryland Environments (Field module)
  • ENV2108 - Geomorphology
  • ENV2123 - Physical Geography Practical​

Ian runs the Graduate School's development programme for research degree supervisors and co-ordinates the development of professional doctorates.  He is the programme leader for the Postgraduate Certificate in Research Degree Supervision and runs the following Master level modules:

  • ENVM501 - Research Degree Supervision - workshops
  • ENVM502 - Research Degree Supervision - observation

Research

I​an's research concerns the effects of wind on the landscape, particularly in deserts. He is the co-author of the textbook Aeolian Geomorphology: an introduction (Longman, 1996) and has written papers on desert dune systems and on dust deposits (loess). He currently co-ordinates a working​ group of colleagues based in UK universities who are undertaking research on the dunes in the Namib Desert, and he is also involved in a research project in the Mojave Desert, California. Ian is an editorial board member of the journal Aeolian Research (Elsevier).
