Overview

I teach and research in the fields of aquatic biogeochemistry, carbon sequestration and biodiversity. Current research is focussed on optimising drinking water treatment processes, using novel constructed wetland and impoundment systems to reduce eutrophication in industrial and rare habitat applications, biofuel production and biodiversity and carbon fluxes in mangrove ecosystems.  I have work published in Nature, Nature Geoscience and other leading journals. I am currently the lead for Graduate Studies in Biological Sciences, and head an Aquatic Ecosystems research group.

 

Teaching and Supervision

I am currently the lead for Graduate Studies in Biological Sciences, and head an Aquatic Ecosystems research group. I convene modules on freshwater ecosystems, wetland ecosystem goods and services and a field trip to the mangroves of South West Florida (in collaboration with Florida Gulf Coast University). 

Potential PhD and Masters by Research can be seen in the following section. Make a difference and study in a field that might help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, eutrophication or habitat degredation!

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

I would consider applications with funding to study in the following fields:

  1. Mangrove Ecosystems
  2. Surf Snowdonia (and inland wave garden)
  3. Drinking Water Quality
  4. Waste Water Treatment
  5. Carbon Sequestration 
  6. Ecological and Geoengineering strategies 
  7. Biodiversity
  8. Carbon Neutral Biofuels

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

Mangrove Ecosystems - carbon sequestration and biodiversity themes

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

Surf Snowdonia (and inland wave garden) - various opportunites relating to water quality and ecosystem goods and services

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

Drinking Water Quality (with particular focus on algal blooms and/or DOC)

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

Waste Water Treatment - novel approaches using constructed aquatic systems

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

Ecological and Geoengineering strategies - including carbon sequestration in wetlands and peatlands, but also aquatic ecosystems

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

Carbon Sequestration - in mangroves, peatlands, lakes and reservoirs

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

Biodiversity - focussing on lower trophic levels of aquatic ecosytems (e.g. algae and phytoplankton) 

Postgraduate Project Opportunities

Carbon Neutral Biofuels - focussing on novel sources and production
