My expertise includes oceanography, geomorphology, sedimentology, geophysics, remote sensing and GIS. However, my research is more specifically focused on mapping the seabed using sonar to understand geological processes, oceanography, and the distribution of benthic habitats in both deep and shallow water environments. 

The key tool used in my seabed mapping research is multibeam sonar, however, I also utilize range of other equipment such as sidescan, sediment grabs, sediment cores, underwater video/photography, oceanographic sensors, satellite imagery, and GIS to aid my seabed mapping activities. 

I have published research from Torres Strait, Gulf of Papua, North West Shelf, Gulf of Carpentaria and the Tasman Sea.
