Personal profile


I am a coastal morphologist and oceanographer, and joined the Department of Environmental Sciences in 2015. Previously, I was a research fellow in Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton, UK. I did my PhD at the University of Western Australia, and Master of Science (1st Class Honours) and Bachelor of Science at the University of Waikato, New Zealand.I am also a founder and on the committee for Women in Coastal Geoscience and Engineering; and the Early Career Researcher (ECR) Representative for the Department of Environmental Sciences at Macquarie University. I am an Associate Editor for Anthropocene Coasts.

My research aims to undestand how the coast responds to multiple drivers, including oceanic, atmospheric, and humans. I am mainly interested in coastal morphodynamics (particulaly beaches) and coastal physical oceanography. My key research themes are:

  1. Coastal erosion and recovery over multiple time and space scales
  2. Influence of geological frameworks such as rocks and reefs on hydrodynamics and morphodynamics
  3. Surf zone processes such as rip currents and sediment transport
