My current research follows on from my PhD project. A large component of my time is dedicated to developing and implemented detection system for the Environmental Radioactivity Lab here at Striling. This involves using gamma-ray spectrmetry units on a number of platforms such as carbourne and handheld systems.
Another area of research I am involved in is the use large volume detectors to estimate the risk posed by plough-induced soil erosion at archaeological sites. This work is a component of the larger European project called the CLIMA (Cultural Landscape risk Identification, Management and Assessment) project, which aims to protect ancient monuments and subsurface archaoelogical structures.
