Employment history

Joined the Centre for Mountain studies in 2015 as a module leader.

Currently holding a post as Principal Scientist in inland flood modelling at the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.  Role includes:

  • Oversight of inland modelling support to assess flood risk for new planning developments and actions associated with Scotland’s Flood Risk Management Planning
  • Oversight of the development of pluvial and fluvial flood hazard and risk mapping products
