  Dr Daniel Parsons

Hi there! My name is Dan and I am a NERC Research Fellow in the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds.

I am actively researching in several areas related to fluvial 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 modeling. 

You can find out about my current research interests and projects by clicking the links on the left. Also here you can find a full list and download information on my publications, and also a brief biography.

Outside of work I enjoy playing and watching many sports including football, squash, rugby and snooker, having played County standard Association Football for the past 6 years. I play Futsal every week and will be playing in the FA Futsal Cup National Finals this summer. I often go hiking in the Peak Distinct and Snowdonia National Parks and I also enjoy watching films and reading books, particularly biographies. I am also fascinated by history, particularly the history of Britain and the ancient civilisations.
