About me

My research interests include international sustainable development, and developing and implementing fit-for-purpose technologies that can be used as part of the agri-food sector or as part of WaSH (Water sanitation and health). My PhD developed point-of-use water treatment technologies for the production of drinking water. For this I focussed on the biological and chemical (trihalomethanes) quality of treated water, as well as comparing how different disinfectants manage the formation of biofilms on ultrafiltration membrane surfaces. Since finishing my PhD, I have worked on several research projects including developing a method for the quantification and characterisation of airborne microplastics, and developing a microbial biofilm model for decontamination of medical endoscopes using non-thermal plasma. I am currently working on international sustainable development projects in the water, agri-food and health sectors.
