Personal profile

Research interests

My areas of research interest include health-related water microbiology, microbial source tracking (MST), waterborne disease control, water and sanitation safety plans, bathing water quality, water eutrophication and shellfish safety.

Approach to teaching

Modules that I delivered at Brighton include Environmental Pollution  at undergraduate level and Water Treatment Technology and Wastewater Treatment Technology on our master’s programme in Water and Environmental Management. I also supervise local and overseas fieldwork along with undergraduate and master’s level dissertations.

I like to engage with my students by delivering informative lectures supported by a variety of visual aids. I also like to guide my students towards the most relevant books and peer-reviewed journals and I use a wide variety of case studies from my research group’s work in water and sanitation in South America, Africa and Asia.

I expect my students to participate actively in my lectures, taking notes, asking questions and helping each other. I also expect them to read widely and to keep themselves updated with the most recent research advances in their field of study.
