Projects per year
I joined the University in 2012 as Senior Lecturer in Engineering Geoscience, at title reflecting my broad interests in the application of engineering to societal challenges. My research and professional interests include the remediation of contaminated land, identifying sustainable sources of renewable energy and other ecosystem services, and the exploration for, exploitation and environmental impacts of geological resources.
My teaching duties include leading the "Energy Design Projects" for MEng & MSc Civil Engineering students
