Research and teaching interests:
My research focuses on the development and use of numerical models to study a range of environmental problems, with a particular emphasis on groundwater flow and solute transport processes. I currently contribute to the development of water flow and pollutant transport models for Electricité de France (parent company of EDF Energy) to look at the safety of nuclear waste disposal strategies.

I have also a particular interest in looking at landslide and slope stability risk, especially the role of the weather in landslide triggering and vegetation as slope reinforcement.
