Research Overview

I build numerical models of natural systems to: (1) help fill knowledge gaps regarding their functions; (2) optimise/improve how we currently apply various Nature Based Solutions (NBS); (3) provide cost-benefit estimation tools that help identify and promote those environmental solutions that make economic sense.

Current Research

As part of the FARM TREE project, I am working on ways to quantify the impact of planting trees in farmlands in Scotland, both at small farm-scale and large regional-scale. The main focuses are on the tree's impacts on water availability/quality/storage, as well as above/below ground carbon sequestration potential.


Past Research

My past research has focused mainly on Natural Flood Management (NFM) and geological Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).
