Interests and specialisms in river science:

  • Hydrology, particularly hydrological modelling at large catchment scale
  • Climate change (its impact on human activities or vice versa)
  • Application of weather radar data into hydrological model, such as NIMROD and ECMWF data
  • Uncertainties on hydrological modelling
  • EU Water Framework Directive
  • Wetland hydrology
  • Urbanisation in river morphology

Academic Qualifications:

- PhD in 'Whole System Modelling of the Impact of Land Use Management in the Parrett Catchment' (University of Bristol, 2007)
- Masters Degree in Physical Geography and GIS (Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea, 1995)
- BSc in Geography (Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea, 1992)


Worked in consultancy for over 6 years as GIS consultant and IT engineering, and Involved in a number of GIS related project in Facility Management (Potable/Grey/Sewage Water Facility). Taught on 'GIS', 'Application of GIS' and 'Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation' as industrial lecturer in two universities over two years.
