A resourceful, hard-working and dedicated Geo-environmental Scientist with significant experience as a Postdoctoral Researcher, Lecturer and Consultant across the UK, Japan and South-East Asia countries. Possesses an outstanding academic background, a good publication record, and significant experience in the fields of environmental engineering across contaminated soil/sediment remediation, groundwater pollution, solute transport modelling and water management.
Possesses excellent presentation skills and can prepare comprehensive documentation and reports as required. Experienced in data processing, is quick to grasp new ideas, technologies and concepts, and is skilled in a range of industry-specific software packages. Works well both independently and as part of a team, demonstrating the motivation and organisation required to meet demanding targets. Combines an analytical and professional approach with excellent interpersonal skills, and can communicate concisely at all levels.
Biochar for contaminated soil remediation and climate-change mitigation
Our very timely findings could be applied in the context of in-situ biochar application to be an effective means of reducing groundwater pollution risks for agricultural chemicals or accidentally released into soil.
Results from experimental studies indicated that biochar amendment to soil significantly enhanced the remediation of the contrasting organic pollutants in soil-biochar systems. A numerical mass transfer model was also used to predict pollutant behaviour in heavy rainfall events.
