In the 20 years I've been with Arup, I've worked on a wide range of water and environmental projects. Based in the Leeds office, I've worked closely with the UK Environment Agency for much of that time. I am on Arup’s business executive for water in the UK, the Middle East and Africa.

My core expertise is in flood resilience: how to reduce the risk and impacts of floods for vulnerable people, properties and infrastructure systems. I'm particularly proud of projects where flood risk has been reduced while also improving the environment for local people and wildlife.
