Hobbies & Interests

I have been competing in various endurance sports for the past 20 years.

Specific Expertise

I have a technical interest in GIS data and how it can be used to improve risk assessments. To this end I have collaborated in the development of GIS based groundwater and surface water risk assessments. This work involved breaking down and re-building the current EU efate models to really understand their inherent assumptions, imitations and how they are impacted by changes. This knowledge has 

wide reaching implication for refining the models . My PhD focused on the fate and behavior of iron in the environment. It was part of a wider EU network of research projects on transition metal behavior surface environments. Many of the metals being studies are also used in biocides and/or pesticides but the current regulatory models are not fit-for-purpose to assess the risk of these substances. I can advise not only on why this is true but provide appropriate alternative options for assessing the environmental risks of metals.
