My research expertise lies on the analysis of environmental changes occurring in rivers, particularly in regulated systems where more often difficult decisions on how best to balance water demands and ecological requirements have to be made. I have studied regulated river systems at several spatial scales, with a focus on understanding the interactions between ecological and physical processes to inform sustainable water management. I am growing international reputation within the academic field of ecohydraulics and river sciences, and I have worked in different countries and environments including Spain, Norway, Australia and the UK.
