Research Interests

My research interests lie in the field of hydrochmeical monitoring and modelling with a particular interest in the application of novel technologies and analysis approaches.

My PhD focused on the newly emerging field of in situ high-frequency hydrochemical monitoring and I have continued to develop this research. I am interested in using the new datasets, attainable through this type of monitoring, to advance the understanding of catchment biogeochemical processing, and how instream processes are linked to wider catchment processing in the soil and hyporheic zone. The combination of these datasets together with novel numerical analysis approaches and experimental data, are revealing new insights into the controls on instream biogeochemical processing and the role these processes play in nutrient cycling.

I am also interested in how these processes will be affected by future environmental change and what implications this will have for the achievement of legislative standards. In particular I am intersted in how we can use the new understanding attained from these datasets to inform and imrpove the development and implementation of the Water Framework Directive.
