Main Objectives

Related projects and other research interests

Investigative work into how data-based mechanistic modelling techniques may be applied to address major issues in contemporary plant physiology.

In collaboration with the environmental physiology group at Lancaster, time series methods are applied to model leaf growth responses in tomatoes and barley during drought conditions.

Application of data-based modelling and forecasting techniques to a number of hydrological scenarios. Active dead zone (ADZ) and Active Mixing Volume (AMV) concepts for water quality modelling, sediment transport and dispersion in reservoirs. Rainfall-flow and rainfall-suspended sediment load modelling and hindcasting. Modelling reservoir sedimentary profiles. Continuous-time modelling algorithm development
