Neil joined CWiMI in January 2013, after 15 years at Imperial College London. He graduated with a BEng in Civil Engineering from Edinburgh University in 1990 and then worked for seven years in the Scottish water industry on wastewater treatment and disposal scheme design and construction. After becoming a Chartered Engineer in 1996, he obtained an MSc in Environmental Engineering, then a PhD in Water Quality Modelling, both from Imperial College. Neil worked as a Lecturer and Reader in Surface Water Hydrology between 2001 and 2013. This included teaching water quality, hydrometry, hydraulics, water resources engineering, and being the Director of the Hydrology MSc programme. His research has focussed on surface water quality, uncertainty in modelling, land use management impacts, hydrological upscaling methods and regionalisation of river flows. Field experience has included a 7-year programme of multi-scale hydrological experiments in Wales. While most of Neil’s research has been UK based, international activity has included projects in Thailand, Uganda, Botswana, Peru, Colombia and China. Consultancy roles have included acting as scientific adviser to the Argentine Government at the International Court of Justice and a range of UK water resources planning and water quality management projects. Neil has been a member of the British Hydrological Society national committee, the ICE’s Water Expert Panel and the NERC Peer Review College. He was won several awards, including the Institution of Civil Engineer’s Baker Medal for water resources research. In 2014 Neil was granted an ARC Future Fellowship in Water Sensitive Mining.
