My research interests are currently focussed on stormwater applications, but are interdisciplinary. They include: Water quality monitoring and analysis (chemical/physical properties) Pollutant load modelling Ecological treatment systems for improving water quality Low impact/multi-value community infrastructure Incorporating co-benefits in engineering design of blue-green infrastructureI welcome contact about new research ideas, including the following new projects:1. Development of novel instream treatment filters for treating stormwater pollutants in ephemeral channels2. Post-construction hydraulic and water quality performance of stormwater ponds3. Use of real time controls (RTC) to optimise treatment performance in stormwater ponds4. Post-construction infiltration and media changes in bioretention (raingardens)5. The contribution of vegetation in bioretention (raingardens) to climate change mitigation, adaptation and stormwater management6. Optimal stormwater pond bathymetry for low rainfall climates7. Development of a model for predicting nutrient pollutant loads from urban permeable surfaces
