Profile Summary

 

My specific areas of research are hydromorphology including sediment transport dynamics, catchment/ reach connectivity, ecohydraulics and through collaboration with environmental consultancies, the Environment Agency, regional River/wildlife Trusts along with the River Restoration Centre, I have helped to established post project monitoring to be an integral part of river restoration projects. 

My research centres on the use of Terrestrial and Aerial Lidar (TLS and ALS), and small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sUAV) to map and model spatial and temporal changes in topography, hydraulics, fluvial habitat and the use of these data for a variety of environmental decision making scenarios. I collaboratively use data captured from these varying platforms in a number of research projects for example: UK and international natural floodplain and water management, river restoration and managment, flood mitigation, water and sediment managment in the Kruger National Park, South Africa, hydropower on the River Nile, Uganda and forest ecosystems in Chernobyl, Ukraine.
