I am a water and environmental engineer based in Arup’s Leeds Office. Through my work with water utilities, regulators, international financial institutions and governments, I am planning and delivering innovative water management solutions around the globe. I was the technical manager for the development of a new drainage masterplan in Shanghai covering an area of 640km2 and a population of 15 million. I am currently advising the Government of Peru on drainage masterplans for seven cities which aspire to use green and blue infrastructure to reduce flood risk while delivering wider benefits to local population.
