Lecturer in Geography




Academic Background

Rosie is an aeolian geomorphologist who studies processes and landforms associated with wind erosion. Her current DPhil project investigates the impact of wildfires on dust emission from partially vegetated dune landscapes and combines remote sensing and fieldwork methods. Her masters work looked at quantifying threshold for dust emissions in pro-glacial environments and how well we detect them from space. She completed her undergraduate degree at Arizona State University whilst on a full scholarship to play water polo.
