Research interests

My research focuses on the impacts of hydrological extremes (floods and droughts – hydro-hazards) on society. It explores the interactions between flow, river form, society vulnerability and resilience aswell as ecosystem services and the issue of climate related uncertainty.

Fluvial, sediment transport, morphological and ecosystem modelling: issues for design uncertainty assessment
