Research Interests

PhD title: River temperature sensitivity and response to drivers of change

Supervisors: Iain Malcolm (Marine Scotland Science), David Hannah (University of Birmingham), Jon Sadler (University of Birmingham)

I am a hydroclimatologist interested in the interactions between hydrological and climatological systems. I am particularly interested in the drivers and controls of stream temperature and how thermal regimes may alter with climate change. I am also interested by science, policy and management interactions.

My doctoral research focuses on (1) characterising spatio-temporal variability in water temperature (2) highlighting areas of thermal sensitivity to climate change and (3) identifying optimum areas for riparian tree planting. As part of this I have helped develop the Scotland River Temperature Monitoring Network. It is envisaged that this research will have implications for the management of temperatures in Scottish rivers. My PhD is funded by a Natural Environment Research Council Open CASE Studentship.


My PhD is a collaboration between Marine Scotland Science and the University of Birmingham. I am also working with local fisheries trusts, district salmon fisheries boards and CAMERAS partners for the delivery of the Scotland River Temperature Monitoring Network.
