I have been pursuing improved approaches to the governance of environmental risks since 1987. My research seeks to reconcile societal unease about pollution with organisational responsibilities for its reduction and safe management in the long-term; with improved outcomes for public and environmental health. My scholarship has been to the practice of environmental engineering, risk management, policy analysis and corporate risk governance. More recently (2003-), I have examined organisational competencies in risk management, especially within the international water sector as it responds to calls for sustained service levels under conditions of constrained access to finance, climate change and water scarcity.
