My first paper as first author was on the settling velocity of maerl beds in the Journal of Sedimentary Research (2014). Two papers on the critical bed shear stress and sediment mobility of maerl in Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science (2017b, 2017a). As a marine conservation side project, I have made a documentary about maerl beds with more information at Pacifist Pirañas Documentaries. I am a committee member of the “Women in Coastal Geoscience and Engineering” and a coauthor on a paper on gender diversity in the Springer-Nature social science journal “Palgrave Communications”. The newest publication is a book chapter (2020) in the second edition of “Seafloor Geomorphology as Benthic Habitat ” As part of an oral history project entitled “Unorthodox: LGBT+ Identity and Faith”, I have contributed a book chapter entitled “The Worm in the Hand.” More information including conferences and theses can be found on Google Scholar.

I have reviewed three papers of the journal Sedimentology (Wiley), one for Geo-Marine Letters and three for Continental Shelf Research. I am an Associate Editor for the diamond open access journal Sedimentologika.
