Sally is a coastal scientist and has special interests in the global impacts of sea-level rise, climate change adaptation and local shoreline management. In 2018, she was a Lead Author in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Special Report into the impact of a 1.5°C in temperature, and is presently contributing to the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment.

Sally’s research interests all hinge around physical and social interactions in the coastal zone, with her publications relating to population change, ports, health, wetlands, heritage, small islands and delta regions. She has published work at a global scale, in Europe, Africa, Bangladesh, India, Ghana, the Maldives and the UK.

Sally has undertaken over 60 interviews and responses to the media in the UK and internationally, including for the BBC (radio, television and online content), The Observer, The TimesThe TelegraphMetroBuzzfeedDeutsche WelleDeutschlandfunkphys.org, Toronto Star, RTÉ and Talk Radio Europe. She has also contributed to a programme on historical coastal change on Radio 4.

She has contributed to pieces in The Conversation through her work on citieshurricanes / small islandssea-level rise impacts in South Africacoastal defence and impacts of climate change . She has also advised on the content of books and television programmes relating to sea-level rise, flooding and erosion. Sally is happy to discuss matters regarding sea-level rise, erosion, coastal flooding and wider coastal change, plus weather and music with journalists.
