Lecturer in Environmental Engineering, University of Liverpool

I am a Chartered Scientist and Member of the Institution of Environmental Sciences. I specialise in soil and groundwater contamination, in particular the movement of colloidal materials through soils, sediments and filtration systems. I'm particularly interested in the use of noninvasive, nondestructive sensing technologies such as fluorescence imaging, advanced radiography, X-ray and stand-off spectroscopy to monitor the long-term evolution of contaminant deposits in soils. I teach Water Resources Engineering and Environmental Site Assessment on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Liverpool. I live in Sheffield, UK with my wife and two lovely kids.
