Personal profile

Research Interests

Christina Fraser is a PhD research student at the University of Strathclyde assessing the transboundary aquifers of Malawi and the wider Southern African Development Community. She has a particular interest in developing methodologies and frameworks to assist in transboundary aquifer assessments alongside the validation and conceptualisation of these groundwater bodies through groundwater modelling to assist with policy creation. Her research is aimed towards assisting Malawi and its surrounding countries to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6 through effective groundwater management of their transboundary aquifers. 

Christina has a geological background through her undergraduate degree and extensive field experience both in Scotland and Africa. She has worked with multiple NGO's, governmental departments and worldwide experts within the field of hydrogeology.

Teaching Interests

Alongside completing her PhD, Christina is also a teaching assistant for the MSc Hydrogeology course assisting with course development, marking, field work and tutorial lecturing for both full time and distance learning students. She is currently assisting with the Aquifer Mechanics, Hydrogeology and Global Water Policy modules of the masters degree.
