James Garratt, PhD CSci
I am the founder and Managing Director of Enviresearch. I am a scientist with a special interest and passion for the assessment of the risks of chemicals to the environment.
I have been working with environmental models since 1996. My work has included many assessments of chemical fate for commercial clients, in particular where advanced (or higher-tier) assessments are required. I have also contributed to the advancement of science through my work on risk assessment in greenhouses; the MERLIN-Expo modelling tool; and sensitivity analysis in drainflow modelling.
I am a member of the Institute of Professional Soil Scientists (IPSS) and the Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). I am a Chartered Scientist and am a regular reviewer of academic papers for research journals.
In my spare time, I like to work on research into forest hydrology and climate change at Newcastle University. I also organise the vegetable judging at the annual Benwell Village Show.
