Professor Dr Krause’s research group investigates the impacts of global environmental change on hydrological fluxes, biogeochemical cycling and contaminant transport, and ecohydrological feedback functions in complex landscapes. His work particularly focuses on the analysis and quantification of multi-component reactive transport processes at aquifer-river interfaces and how these are influenced by changes in land-use and climate.

The research of his group combines novel modelling techniques with the development of innovative experimental technologies for investigating the interlinked cycling of nutrients and reactive transport of contaminants. He is applying novel distributed sensor network technology together with reactive “smart tracers” for investigating interconnected nitrogen and carbon cycling and microbial metabolic activity in reactive “hot-spots” and “hot-moments” at aquifer-river interfaces. His group provides expertise in developing adaptive modelling strategies for coupled simulation of groundwater and surface water flow at catchments scale which are applied for analysing the implications of environmental change on water transport and nutrient conditions in groundwater and surface waters.

In addition to reactive transport and transformation in coupled groundwater-surface water systems, Dr. Krause’s research interests extend to the ecohydrological implications of nutrient cycling and contaminant transport at aquifer-river interfaces as well as the development of management strategies and political instruments to promote the attenuation potential in these systems.

Dr Krause has more than ten years experience in leadership and management of interdisciplinary international research projects in ecohydrological process dynamics and biogeochemical cycling at groundwater-surface water interfaces, and a strong record in securing external research funding (> £4.5M by NERC, EPSRC, EU-FP7, RGS-IBG, Environment Agency, Leverhulme Trust, Climate-KIC - EIT, Leibnitz Association, DFG – German Science Foundation).
