I demonstrate on the following modules:
My research focuses on investigating the controls on landslide distributions across the Nepal Himalaya. I am particularly interested in quantifying how earthquakes might precondition hillslopes to be increasingly susceptible to future trigger events, and how this may be moderated by other geomorphological, climatic and human processes. I am also interested in exploring how scientific research can be used more effectively for disaster risk reduction and response.
