Research Overview

Interested in the effects of anthropogenic activities upon flow and water quality. Focused upon the use of models, primarily utilising geographic information systems (GIS) but also has substantial experience using hydraulic models and some experience with hydrologic models.

Current research focuses upon the fate of personal care products and pharmaceuticals from wastewater outlets in a Chinese catchment. A key achievement from this research project, was the parameterisation of a model within a data barren environment.
