Biography

My research interests are related to environmental change in coastal areas driven by natural and human-induced process and the implications to coastal management. In particular, I am interested in how climate change will affect the frequency and intensity of extreme events and the implications to coastal flooding and erosion hazards, risks and vulnerability. I have worked closely with researchers and practitioners concerned with coastal management in the UK, South Africa, Brazil and across Europe. Currently, I am involved in projects of quite varied focus, including: assessing risks to coastal/marine cultural heritage in East Africa (AHRC/GCRF), the effects of climate change on beach behaviour in Brazil (CAPES), practical applications of ecosystem-based management in coastal areas (CAPES and Newton Funds) and coastal changes in mixed sand and gravel systems (NERC).

I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) and I also volunteer as a member of the RGS Southern Region Committee...

Research

I am currently writing a book about managed realignment (Springer Briefs) and my research in the last year has revolved around this topic, I am particularly interested in assessing the long-term sustainability of implemented projects in England and also the differences in strategy and implementation approaches used in different countries.

Preliminary results of my research were presented at the International Coastal Symposium 2013 (Plymouth/UK) and published in the Journal of Coastal Research Special Issue 65. To obtain an overview of experiences and views about the achievements and limitations of managed realignment across different sectors and countries, I have developed a quick survey, which can be completed at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BP8JH87. Preliminary results from this survey (concerning only responses from England) and a comparison with a survey conducted by the Environment Agency will be presented in the International Coastal Symposium 2014 (Durban/South Africa). I plan to present the results of this research in publications that will be submitted to the Journal of Environmental Management and to the Science of the Total Environment.

I currently have three ongoing projects (which have very different scope and objectives):

1. VALSA, Valuation of ecosystem services applied to coastal vulnerability (funded by CAPES, Brazil). In collaboration with colleagues of two universities in Brazil (UFRN and UFPE), we are developing methods based on ecosystems services that can be applied by government practitioners at the local level to reduce actions and decision-making that increase social, economic and environmental vulnerability in coastal areas.

2. X-Com, X-band radar and evidence-based coastal management decisions (funded by NERC, UK). The project is testing whether X-band radar technology can become a cost-effective coastal monitoring tool (X-COM tool) to support practical applications required in the public and private sectors. The work involves collaboration with researchers and practitioners from Bournemouth University, National Oceanography Centre, Suffolk Coastal District Council, Mott MacDonald and Cefas.

3. Managed realignment (funding from a range of sources and covering a range of aspects) – you can find out some background information in this unedited copy of my book here: http://eprints.bournemouth.ac.uk/21139/.
