Overview

I am a Lecturer in Environmental and Physical Geography at the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences. My research interests lie in the intersection of water, ecosystems, society and technologies, focusing on three main themes: (i) hydro-socio-ecological systems under change, (ii) resilience and environmental risk, and (iii) innovative data technologies for the environment and development, including low-cost sensor networks and visualisation applications.
