Arthur graduated as a civil engineer and researcher and have participated in research in water quality modelling, flood mitigation, transient-based defect detection in water supply systems and hydrodynamic stability theories. My current research involves mechanistic and artificial intelligence (AI) models for sustainable development and public information concerning water quality. The key research questions are:

  • Mechanistic model assumptions in coastal waters: There is no general consensus concerning the turbulence and bacteria decay models suitable for coastal waters. While the suitability of these models are site and bacteria dependent, factors governing the use of such models require clarification.
  • AI models: AI models require less computational power and obtain water quality predictions quicker than mechanistic models. Nonlinear AI models are being developed to better predict bathing water quality, especially faecal indicator bacteria concentrations.

I am also a member of the International Association for Hydro-environment Engineering and Research (IAHR).
