I am a PhD candidate at Imperial College, working on a Grantham Institute for Climate Change project investigating the impact of climate change on surface water quality and drinking water treatment, with further funding from Welsh Water and South West Water. I won ‘Best Thesis 2010/11’ for my King’s College MSc research on lead contamination in Sub-Saharan Africa, worked as a sustainability consultant with CarbonPlan Ltd and as an applications specialist with Industrial Tomography Systems.

Your personal motive

I’m from the north of England and I grew up in the countryside, surrounded by peat and very brown rivers. When I saw this opportunity, it seemed very natural to go into this area as I already knew a lot about the environment and the kind of places where these processes occur.
