Personal profile

Biography

PhD Freshwater Science, Ulster University, 1997

MSc Applied Environmental Sciences, Queen’s University Belfast, 1994

BSc Biological Sciences, Ulster University, 1993

Research Interests

Richard is a freshwater scientist, interested in the movement and toxicity of contaminants in freshwater systems.  His research has focused on the distribution of heavy metals in lakes and the effect of metals on the aquatic ecosystem.  The risks of heavy metals from long-range transboundary pollution has been recognised as an important factor affecting ecosystems and the human population.  A clear understanding of metal biogeochemical cycles is vital to help implement cuts in global emissions.

Teaching Interests

Richard teaches on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules on the geography and environmental science degree programme.  He is Course Director for the MSc in Environmental Toxicology & Pollution Monitoring.
