Biography

I believe engineers have a crucial role to play in developing adaptation solutions to ensure our infrastructure and cities are resilient and sustainable in the face of intensifying global change. A remarkable feature of my work has been the application of engineering principles to broad scale modelling and analysis - recognition that engineering systems have a wider influence than their physical form and must be considered within their broader environmental and social context. This engineering philosophy has become known as Earth Systems Engineering. I am a founder member of the Centre for Earth Systems Engineering Research (CESER) at Newcastle University. My research is necessarily a cross-disciplinary endeavour, involving collaboration with leading researchers, consultants and government agencies nationally and internationally. Through close working with endusers including placements at the Greater London Authority, I have disseminated and applied my work directly with stakeholders.
