Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Strathclyde researching the potential for hydropower resource in the UK and how this resource is affected by climate changes. Additionally, I am investigating ways to build resilience to these changes.


Specifically, I am interested in development of a robust methodology to determine the potential hydrological, technical, financial and realisable resource of run-of-river hydropower schemes using the UK as an example. Furthermore, I am also researching the effect climate change has on the flows and energy production of run of river schemes and determining possible vulnerabilities and ways to build resilience to these changes.


My research is supervised by Dr Chris White (University of Strathclyde) and supplementary guidance is generously given by Dr Douglas Bertram (University of Strathclyde).

Research Interests

My research interests include hydropower, especially run of river, climate change, adaptation, mitigation and resilience to climate change.
