Doctoral Prize Fellow
I joined Loughborough in October 2018 as a Doctoral Prize Fellow in Geography, School of Social Sciences.
This independent research position gives me two years dedicated to kick-starting my academic research career. My research focuses on the use of novel technologies for quantifying parts of the physical environment. For example, I fly small drones to acquire imagery of rivers and then use the images to develop new methods for extracting quantitative information about the river habitats. I use special software to create 3D models of rivers allowing us to 'see' rivers in a huge amount of detail, which hasn't previously been possible. Outside of work, I enjoy renovating old houses and interior design. I recently completed the renovation of a late Victorian property and loved every minute of it, despite the hard work. I also enjoy spending time with my two rescue cats. They teach me a lot about the importance of rest and relaxation.
