DescriptionMy research interested include groundwater quality, groundwater dependent ecosystems and surface water-groundwater interactions, particularly concerning phosphorus transport. More recent work has focussed on the Water Framework Directive, river basin management, strategic environmental assessment, and the impacts of climate change on groundwater resources.
