and thanks for visiting these pages!
I am an academic with a background in surface water hydrology, with current research foci in flood risk assessment, wetland dynamics, water resources and the potential impacts of climate change on each of these. I utilize methods including computational modeling, GIS and statistical analysis, incorporating field data and remote sensing imagery, at scales of application ranging from small rivers in the Caribbean to the Amazon. In addition to research, I also engage in professional consultancy in hydrological science, primarily assessing the potential impacts of climate change.
At present, I am based in the Geospatial Research Institute Toi Hangarau at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, where I am a Professor in Spatial Information. Previously, I was at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad & Tobago, Caribbean, where I helped to establish the new Department of Geography and contributed to the development and implementation of new academic research programs.
