Professor Nick Kettridge

Professor Nick Kettridge

Professor of Ecohydrology
Deputy Head of School (Geography, Earth and Environmental Science)

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences

Dr Nick Kettridge specializes in characterizing the ecohydrological resilience of ecosystems to both natural and anthropogenic disturbance. Much of his research focuses on peatlands; understanding the processes that control the provision of key ecosystem services within these environments, and quantifying their response to changing climatic conditions and extreme events such as fire and drought.

Dr Kieran Khamis

Dr Kieran Khamis

Lecturer in Physical Geography

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences

Kieran is an environmental scientist with a particular interest in freshwater ecosystems. His research can be divided into two main areas: (1) elucidating the impacts of global change (climate change, land use change and drought) on river ecosystems; and, (2) improving understanding of water quality and biogeochemistry of human modified river catchments (agricultural, urban), with a focus on ...

Professor Greg Sambrook Smith

Professor of Fluvial Sedimentology
Head of Research

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences

Professor Sambrook Smith investigates the linkages between river processes and sedimentology at scales ranging from individual pores within a river bed up to km-long bars in large rivers.

The World’s largest rivers suffer from a paucity of knowledge about how they currently function, how they have evolved through time and how they may respond to future environmental changes. This lack of ...
