Biography

Richard is involved in a variety of research and teaching activities, primarily linked to high precision GPS/GNSS and its applications in engineering, environmental and geophysical monitoring, and was responsible for the creation and development of the British Isles continuous GNSS Facility (BIGF) (see www.bigf.ac.uk) from its inception in 1998 to its handover to British Geological Survey in 2023. In the UK, he led research on the development of GPS/GNSS techniques for monitoring vertical land movements at tide gauges in relation to climate-driven changes in sea level (see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/6231334.stm) and in 2014, his research on measuring land and sea levels was given the Faculty of Engineering Knowledge Exchange Award for Societal Impact at the inaugural University of Nottingham Knowledge Exchange and Innovation Awards. He is also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Research Summary

Richard's current research interests are linked to high precision GPS/GNSS and its applications in engineering, environmental and geophysical monitoring.

Past Research

Richard's past research interests were linked to high precision GPS/GNSS and its applications in engineering, environmental and geophysical monitoring, with a particular focus on the development of GPS/GNSS techniques for monitoring vertical land movements at tide gauges in relation to climate-driven changes in sea level, where he led research looking at the problem on two different spatial scales: on a national scale, working with the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Liverpool; and on a regional scale, working with the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Liverpool, the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Nigel Press Associates (NPA) in London and along the River Thames (see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/6231334.stm). He was also responsible for the creation and development of the British Isles continuous GNSS Facility (BIGF) (see www.bigf.ac.uk) from its inception in 1998 to its handover to British Geological Survey in 2023.

Future Research

Richard's future research interests will be linked to high precision GPS/GNSS and its applications in engineering, environmental and geophysical monitoring.
