Post-Doctoral Fellow

Research Interests

Focus on spatial characteristics of soil geochemical using GIS and spatial analysis. Focus on the interaction between environment and human activities and the linkage of environment and public health. Currently, I investigate the influential factors (eg: nitrogen, phosphorus) on water quality in Ireland. Provide valuable soil information for policy and decision makers. Specialized in geostatistics, map producing and data mining. 

Current Projects

WaterMARKE is an ambitious multi-actor research project which is co-funded by EPA and DAFM. The project connects the areas of biophysical science, socio-economics, behavioural psychology and implementation science in a unique and novel framework that goes further than most research projects in that it crosses over between research and knowledge transfer to provide outputs that are valuable to the research communities in these areas, as well as producing a knowledge transfer template which tests and implements the learnings from the project. This project approaches the issue of water quality from the scientific, institutional, behavioural and Knowledge Transfer perspectives.
