About

Personal Statement

I am an honorary research associate in Natural Flood Management (NFM), and continue to collaborate with the department, I now serve as a NFM project manager at the Mersey Forest.

Initially, I was a Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate in NFM, with Waterco, an engineering consultant.

My interests focus on geomorphology, green infrastructure and the use of Nature Based Solutions (NBS) to address flood risk and water quality challenges. NBS can be applied in deep urban environments too, to address air quality and urban heat island and I have supported the Urban GreenUP programme in evaluating the efficacy and evidence surrounding measures including tree SuDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems) and floating reedbed islands.
