My background is in physical geography, the study of landscape forms and processes, and how people interact with them. After completing a PhD at the University of Dundee I worked in the USA at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since 2002, I have been based in the Urban Water Technology Centre in the School of Science, Engineering and Technology at the University of Abertay.
