My research aims are to investigate the mechanics of the Earth's crust and ice sheets by studying the fundamental physics and mechanics of geological materials, through theory, field work and laboratory experiments. The Earth's crust and ice sheets are the parts of the solid Earth with which humankind interact directly, and therefore of the greatest interest to me. I apply my research towards studying the impacts of climate change and natural hazards, particularly in relation to my role as Director, UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction.
