Bridget Rusk is a water quality scientist, with a specialization in understanding how pollution impacts our ability to interact with the 'natural' environment. Her background is in the environmental management of contaminated sites in Northern Canada.
The goal of Bridget’s PhD research is to improve the monitoring and forecasting of microbial pollution events in recreational waters. The work is based in the River Almond (a sub-catchment of the Firth of Forth).
When not on campus, she can be found enjoying the Scottish countryside with her golden retriever, Dale.
