I am interested in investigating the controls on landslide behaviour across the Nepal Himalaya. Specifically, I am looking to better understand the apparent relationships between earthquake-preconditioning and increased landslide frequency, and how these relationships are moderated by weather events, fluvial processes and infrastructure construction. I am also keen to use this research to help improve disaster risk management strategies in Nepal and elsewhere.
