Impact Translation Fellow
Richard is providing the monitoring support for Natural Flood Management projects across Yorkshire.
His research centres on catchment management, particularly how land management impacts hydrological and geomorphological processes.
He also has a number of interests at the University of Leeds Farm having recently been involved in the SoilBioHedge project which is examining how grass leys connected to hedgerows can restore and improve soil quality within arable fields. He is involved in the development of a soil observing facility at the Farm and a hydrological monitoring network designed to measure the hydrological fluxes.
He also acts as the point of contact for the University’s Haldrup F55 plot Grass Harvester with on-board NIR spectrophotometer system.
