I am a PhD student as part of the NERC funded GW4 FRESH Centre for Doctoral Training – a CDT in freshwater biosciences and sustainability. I am part of the second cohort of students. My PhD project is looking at High resolution modelling of the fate and transport of micropollution and their effect on ecosystems in small rivers. I am based at the University of Bath, where I also attained a MEng in Biochemical Engineering.
The aim of this blog is to share and document some of my experiences and work as I progress through the PhD journey. In doing this I will hopefully improve my writing skills and ability to present my work in an easy to read digestible format. I also hope it will help strengthen the public impact of my work.
I am new to this blogging world though, so bare with, hopefully I’ll take to it like a duck to water…

The agenda was jam-packed following last years two-week… Read more
The second instalment of the FRESH CDT training took place at the University of Bristol, organised by Prof. Martin Genner and Prof. Penny Johnes. The seven day course, titled “Robust Evidence for Freshwater Sciences”, comprised of 4 days of statistical data analysis training using the open source software R. This was followed by a day’s… Read more
