Biography

Over thirty years of research into natural and induced earthquakes and related anthropogenic hazards, with a broad background in near-surface geophysics, structural geology, geocomputing and geoconservation. Wide-ranging current interests include geothermal energy, geophysics applied to glacial deposits, geologically-related industrial heritage and archaeology, Staffordshire geology, geocomputing, rock mechanics and geological education.
