Personal profile


I am an Associate Professor in Physical Geography, specialising in flood risk. My PhD research, completed at Coventry University in 2017, modelled the role of different combinations of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) in sequence to effectiveley manage urban flood risk. During my PhD I developed interests in both numerical modelling and field monitoring to better understand how SuDS are able to manage urban runoff.


My principal research interests are related to sustainable approaches to flood management, particularly in light of the challenges posed by urbanisation and climate change. I have consequently undertaken research, working alongside the Environment Agency and the Heart of England Forest, to determine the influence of tree planting on both local and catchment scale runoff. I have also worked internationally, with colleagues in China to appraise the long term influence of the Sponge City progroamme on flood risk and how SuDS can be incorporated in informal settlements. I am also interested in the social impacts of sustainable flood infrastructure and how we can better connect locals with these projects to ensure their long-term sustainability.  


I am also course director for BSc Geography at Coventry University. I am extremely passionate about contributing to the success of student academia within Coventry University and teach on modules surrounding field skills and methods, hydrometeorological hazards and natural hazard management.
