Research overview

I am Pro-Dean for Research for the Faculty of Environment and Director of water@leeds. I am also Chair in Physical Geography.

In my research I seek to understand the processes associated with the hydrology and carbon dynamics of peatlands under environmental change. I also seek to understand how land management, including agriculture, impacts flowpaths through soils and into watercourses. I currently have £9 million of active grants on which I am a named investigator. I also edit and write for several major textbooks.
