Researcher on the “Changes at the Riparian Reactive Interface (CARRI)” project. This is an international science collaboration between 2022-2025 examining the role of landscape and soil processes on the passage of nutrients carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus from land to oceans. Our research involves scientists and data collection in Scotland (James Hutton Institute), England (Lancaster University), Sweden (SLU) and Germany (UFZ).

Lead Scientist on a new Seedcorn project:  “The river surface microlayer – a problem or solution for aquatic pollution?” (RIVERSUM). The aim of this project is to examine the biochemical enrichment of the Surface microlayer (SML) in Scottish streams, the spatial and temporal variability and controlling factors. This will help to improve our understanding of the SML and its importance on microbial functioning and the overall water column chemistry.
