Research interests:

1) Ecohydrology
2) Urban green space ecosystem services
3) Precipitation partitioning
4) Role of data frequency in hydrological characterisation

Career history:

I completed my ecohydrological PhD at the end of August 2022 and in September of 2022 started a temporary teaching and research post in the Department of Geography (both at the University of Aberdeen). As part of my teaching I teach to all levels of students, whilst my research is ecohydrological focussed in two contrasting environments; an urban green space and upland montane habitat.

Active research projects:

Quantifying heterogeneity in ecohydrological partitioning in urban green spaces
