My research sits at the intersection of physical and human geography and is primarily focused on citizen participation in water management, with a particular interest in flooding and flood management. I draw from a broad range of methods from numerical modelling and traditional physical field research to participatory action research. 

In particular I am interested in:

  • The role of people in catchment and river management
  • The development of flood resilience at a community level
  • The development of more inclusive and participatory practices of environmental decision-making and management
  • Sustainability, participation, and power in large-scale water management schemes
