Marcus is a PhD student at the School of Geography and the Environment and convenor of the Oxford Hydrology Group. He obtained an MSci (First Class Honours) at Durham University where his dissertation investigated floodplain representation in a 2D flood inundation model. For his Master’s project he undertook a pivoting analysis to understand bedrock river morphology and alluvial cover influence on gravel entrainment.
He has earned the W.A. Moyes Prize for exemplary fieldwork, Best MSci Graduate award and the Vice-Chancellor’s Academic Excellence Scholarship (2017-2018). Within the geography department at Durham, he also investigated loess landslides and geomorphological indicators which could determine their age when utilising satellite imagery. Marcus has specialised in fluvial geomorphology, hydrology, GIS and remote sensing skills.
