Director Science Graduate School 2011-2014

Director Online Masters in Environmental Sustainability

Director Aquens Ltd. (Campus Company)

P.I. - Freshwater Biodiversity, Ecology and Fisheries Research Group
My primary research activities focus on the assessment of land-use and other anthropogenic activities on the hydrochemical and ecological quality of surface waters. I have completed studies on the aquatic habitats of peatlands, agricultural, upland, urban and forested landscapes as well as canals and constructed wetlands.  My research group has also maintained a strength in fisheries studies, working in close collaboration with Inland Fisheries Ireland on a variety of species and systems. Further afield I have collaborating with Operation Wallacea to develop a water quality biotic index for the Merendon Mountains region of Honduras and with the University of Addis Ababa
