Research and expertise
I am a part-time research assistant working on risk-based flood forecasting and nature-based solutions modelling.
I have three-year's of industry experience in water and sewerage pipelines design. My current research interests are: flood simulations; understanding pollutant transport in urban areas; and nature-based solutions modelling and assessment.
Current research activity
- Pollutant transport and pathway tracking in urban areas
- Nature-based solutions modelling
- GPU acceleration techniques for large-scale catchment modelling

I am a part-time research assistant, working on the project “Impact scenario modelling for risk-based flood warning in India, Newton Fund through the UK Met Office”.
I completed my MSc degree in Water and Wastewater Engineering in 2014 at Cranfield University. I worked as an associate engineer for three years at the Dalian Municipal Design & Research Institute, China and started my PhD at Newcastle University in 2017, transferring to Loughborough University twelve months later to complete my studies.
I am interested in hydrodynamic modelling, flood risk analysis, and sustainable drainage system design and assessment.
