Background

Currently researching challenges in drinking water disinfection through laboratory disinfection experiments using flow cytometry and whole genome sequencing.

Recently completed a PhD investigating the impacts of airport de-icers on water quality and the growth of sewage fungus in rivers. Research involved regular fieldwork to examine water quality and river ecosystem collecting chemical, biological and hydrological data, including DNA and metagenomic sequencing of river periphyton. Complemented by microbiological laboratory growth experiments, analytical chemistry and pilot-scale erosion experiments.

Research opportunities

Specialising in sewage fungus and its impact on freshwater ecosystems, my research interests delve into the broader context of river water quality and the resilience of watercourses to pollution incidents.
