David Graham is a Lecturer in Physical Geography in the Department of Geography, Loughborough University. For more information about his teaching and administrative duties at Loughborough, please see his Loughborough homepage.
David moved to Loughborough in 2001 as a Research Associate to work on the development of novel digital image analysis procedures for measuring the surface grain-size distribution of fluvial gravels (in association with Professor Ian Reid and Dr Stephen Rice). This work was initially funded by The Leverhulme Trust and Loughborough University, but the commercial potential for the technology has now been recognised and funding secured from The Gatsby Charitable Foundation for software development and marketing. Further information about the software is at http://sedimetrics.com/.
David has also worked with Dr Stephen Rice (Loughborough), Professor Trevor Hoey (Glasgow) and Professor Rob Ferguson (Durham) on a NERC funded project modelling the impacts of tributarys using sediment routing models.
Prior to moving to Loughborough, David undertook doctoral research in the Institute of Geography and Earth Sciences, Aberystwyth University. This was undertaken within the Centre for Glaciology and supervised by Professor Michael Hambrey and Dr Neil Glasser. The project was entitled: “Moraine-mound formation during the Younger Dryas in Britain and the Neoglacial in Svalbard” and funded by the Aberystwyth University.
David undertook his undergraduate training in the School of Geography at the University of Nottingham from where he graduated with first class honours in 1997. He specialised in Geomorphology and technical aspects of Geography. His most significant work during this time was an investigation into the Neoglacial chronology of part of Baffin Island, Canada.
