Daniel Parsons



Hi there! My name is Dan and I am a Professor in Process Sedimentology and founding Director of the Energy and Environment Institute here at the University of Hull. I completed my PhD at The University of Sheffield in 2004 before moving to work on a NERC funded Post-Doctoral Research Assistant post in Earth Sciences at the University of Leeds. In 2005 I was awarded a NERC Research Fellowship, which allowed me to follow my own independent research programme for 3 years. Following the completion of my Fellowship term, I spent a year at the USGS Hydroacoustics Office and the Department of Geology at the University of Illinois, USA, before returning to Leeds in 2010 to take up a Lectureship post in Earth System Science at the School of Earth and Environment. In 2011 I moved east down the M62 to the University of Hull, where I hold a Personal Chair as Professor in Process Sedimentology. I am actively researching in several areas related to fluvial, estuarine, coastal and deep marine sedimentology. My research focuses on the interaction between fluid flows and mobile sediment, using a process based approach that combines fieldwork, laboratory experimentation and numerical modelling. I am keen on techniques and methodological innovations that enhance substantive understanding of the processes within the field of sedimentology. I teach on modules that align with my research, enabling me to bring cutting-edge research into the lecture theatre, practical or field class. You can find out about my current and recent research projects and my teaching interests on my personal website (left link), where you can also find a complete list and download information on my publications, and also a fuller biography and CV.
