Personal profile


I'm a generalist hydrologist. With a background in Environmental Engineering my research focuses on quantifying dynamical interactions in environmental systems with a large focus on hydrological processes and solute trasport. My research spans geomorphology, landscape evolution, pesticide and nutrient leaching to rivers, human settlement of river basins, and self-organisation of eco-hydrological systems.
