Research Overview

My current research interests associated with the Long-Term Large Scale (LTLS) project (www.ltls.org.uk) include carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus dynamics in semi-natural environments and representation of erosion processes at large temporal and spatial scales. I am also interested in hydrological flow and solute transport processes involving preferential flow pathways, non-stationary water residence times and storage-discharge hysteresis. More broadly, I am interested in how the world works, and how we can improve our understanding and management of our environment through systems modelling.
