Philip is an Environmental Data Scientist in the Freshwater Restoration & Sustainability Group at UKCEH. He is a specialist in lake catchment science, frequently working with hydrological, botanical, land use and water quality data to assess conditions and recovery of fresh waters in the UK and beyond. He leads the development of the UK Lakes Portal, which brings together data from many institutes and areas to facilitate lake research and make data publicly available and accessible. His work encompasses all aspects of data science, working in an array of coding languages, databases, software and systems to analyse data and find patterns, as well as running a number of different training courses to disseminate this knowledge to others.
