Chris is a Senior Environmental Sensing Technician within the ES@S research and enterprise unit within Geography and Environmental Science. His work ranges from the collection of data through to the presentation of analysis undertaken, assisting on research projects as well as providing services for external clients.

Chris has a background in developing sensor systems and monitoring routines for investingating the interactions between vegetation and flow within river systems. More recent research has investigated using machine learning methods to imporve our understanding of sediment delivery across the worlds largests rivers. As a result, he has a wide variety of skills ranging from data aqusition and processing, through to machine learning and modelling techniques.

He has worked on a wide variety of projects for research and commercial purposes, operating in a range of environments from catchment managament through to the coastal zone, making use of autnomous surveying systems such as UAVs and USVs, as well as terrestrial data collection.
