About me

Scotland Hydro Nation Chair

My role is to provide the leadership to forge the collaborative relationships across the Scottish water sector to deliver the solutions for sustainable water management in Scotland, including going beyond net zero. I am also the academic Director for Scotland’s International Environment Centre, with a mission to drive inclusive growth and support the net zero carbon agenda by bringing the environment to the heart of decision making. My team are also pioneering in transforming the use of Earth observation technologies for quantifying water quality and quantity at local and global scales. I also lead the UK’s input into the Pan-European Research Infrastructure on River-Sea systems (DANUBIUS-RI). I also built the ISO 17025 accredited Environmental Radioactivity Laboratory, which supports the activities UK environment regulators and industry.
