Skills & Experience
Interdisciplinary Experience

I have been involved in integrated EU projects over the past four years, specialising in course scale spatial modelling at the European scale. Concentrating primarily on the development and implementation of: hydrological and erosion models; GIS applications and AML and FORTRAN coding. Current applications centre on the downscaling of the coarse scale application to target areas where finer resolution data exists and more detailed processes become relevant.
