Specialism: Sediment transport; Flow-sediment boundary dynamics; Geomorphology; Flume-based physical modelling

Biog. Heather holds degrees in Geography BSc (Leeds), MSc Oceanography (Southampton) and PhD in Civil Engineering (Heriot-Watt) and is currently a Lecturer in Water Engineering and Director of the Hydraulic Research Laboratory at the University of Glasgow. Her research focuses on fluvial sediment transport, including projects on traditional particle entrainment, fine sediment siltation in salmon spawning gravels, biostabilisation (biofilms) of river beds and wider research into pollutant studies in Sustainable urban Drainage Systems and urban flood modelling systems. By looking outside-the-box at instrumentation, she was also one of the first researchers to employ medically-based Magnetic Resonance Imaging to examine the internal structure of river bed sediments. She supervises a range of related PhD research activities involving external funding from EPSRC, Nuffield Foundation, Royal Scottish Geographical Society, British Society for Geomorphology, Scottish Natural Heritage and industry. She also has collaboration with HR Wallingford, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and a number of national and international universities. Her related undergraduate and postgraduate teaching activities include Sustainable River Management & Engineering, Hydrology, Water Engineering (floods, geomorphology & coasts) and Design (canal restoration) where she actively promotes fieldtrips and flume-based learning.
