Personal profile


2020-       : PhD. Saline Intrusion in Coastal Aquifers, Queens University Belfast 

2019-2020: MSc. Environmental Engineering, Queens University Belfast

2015-2019: BSc. Geography-Geoscience, University of Aberdeen

Research Focus

My research focusses primarily on the hydrodynamic behaviour of saltwater intrusion into coastal aquifers. I aim to investigate the effects of tides, fractures, and freshwater extraction on the intruding salt wedge. Further research will investigate how preventative measures may be added to address groundwater salination at field scale in coastal regions.
