Personal profile

Research interests

My research is driven by a passion to address key questions surrounding the origins and fate of human and agricultural wastes, particularly in relation to their delivery from land to water bodies. This interest has grown out of my MSci degree in Geography, PhD and postdoctoral research in the fields of catchment hydrochemistry and molecular organic geochemistry.

My research to date has combined biogeochemical and hydrological approaches and has investigated the molecular composition, transformation and transport of organic matter by water and sediment flows. My Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellowship focuses on important emerging scientific questions concerning the fate and transport of plastic-derived compounds and plastic degradation products in agriculture. Using a combination of cutting-edge chemical analytical techniques in conjunction with data modelling provides exciting opportunities for the exploration of agricultures impact on our environment.  

More broadly I have research interests in the transport and fate of pollution, (including plastics and bioplastics) and nutrients in the terrestrial environment.
