I have been researching ocean, atmosphere and lake physics for over 20 years, and have worked with a variety of numerical models, field data and long-term data. I lead CEH work in the use of automated high resolution monitoring stations in lakes and was PI on the NERC Sensor Network grant for a United Kingdom Lake Ecological Observatory Network (UKLEON). My current research focusses on lake physics and its myriad effects on lake ecology. I have regularly received funding from the NERC and worked on several large EU projects.
I have supervised several MSc and PhD students and lecture on a Lancaster University MSc course.
I am a member of the GLEON Collaborative Climate Committee.
