Research Fellow, CAWR
I am an interdiscplinary researcher studying interactions between the living world and the physical environment in freshwater ecosystems. My work involves the application of concepts and methods from biology, ecology, hydrology, hydraulic engineering and geomorphology. Much progress has been made in this interdisciplinary field, known as 'hydroecology', in recent years but there is much work still to do in sharing knowledge and better integrating the often disparate approaches from these disciplines. This is extremely important in river ecosystems where biophysical linkages are especially strong. My vision is to help the freshwater-related research community to make the best use of existing knowledge, identify information gaps and fill those gaps with original research that is truly interdisciplinary.
Martin has worked in the energy industry, local government and environmental consultancy for over 17 years, taking part in and leading projects relating to waterways and other public infrastructure. After graduating from University of Worcester in 2009, Martin went on to complete an MSc in River Environmental Management at the University of Birmingham. He returned to Worcester the following year to undertake a PhD.
His doctoral thesis implemented a hydrodynamic view of rivers at multiple scales in order to develop new ways of assessing habitat quality for Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and modelling the impacts of hydropower development on threatened fish communities in South America. With his background in highly regulated industries, Martin has an excellent awareness of legislative issues and has put this to good effect in providing guidance to EU member states on compliance with the Water Framework Directive and the Habitats Directive.
