Assistant Lecturer of Civil, Environmental and Water Engineering, Atlantic Technological University Sligo

Ruth Quinn received her PhD degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Greenwich, UK. Folowing her PhD, Ruth examined water quality and quantity in rainwater harvesting structures (sand dams) in rural Kenya as part of her role as a research fellow at Cranfield University. Her following project (University of Aberdeen, 2018 - 2019) involved modelling the impact of global agriculture and livestock on surface and groundwater globally, regionally, and locally. This required expert collection, analysis and management of large datasets and creating integrated computer models.

As a postdoctoral researcher at The University of Sheffield (2019 - 2022), she examined the impact of small-scale sustainable drainage systems (rainwater harvesting, rain gardens etc.) on flood resilience and combined sewer overflow events as part of a large inter-disciplinary team of social and environmental scientists and landscape architects.
