BSc(Hons) (Aberystwyth), MSc (Manchester), PhD (Manchester)
I gained a BSc (Honours) in Microbiology from University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and then a Masters in Pollution and Environmental Control in Biological Sciences at University of Manchester, followed by a PhD on upland land use and its affect on water quality in the catchment of Stocks Reservoir in the Forest of Bowland.
In 1988, I joined the EIA Centre and was responsible for the day-to-day management of the Centre and also for several projects. I have been involved in various research projects including European projects such as the five year review of implementation of the EIA Directive (85/337/EEC), a European Community-wide EIA training programme, and archaeology and EIA in North West Europe, as well as UK-based work involving monitoring environmental assessment and planning, the effect of EIA on planning decisions, the role of monitoring and post-auditing in EIA, scoping practice in England, and practice in EIA for offshore oil and gas developments.
