Summary

Alex is a PDRA working on the NERC funded project "Legacy Wastes in the Coastal Zone: Environmental Risks and Management Futures" (see http://gotw.nerc.ac.uk/list_full.asp?pcode=NE%2FT003022%2F1). His research focuses primarily on the use of GIS and field studies to assess the risks posed by legacy waste landfill sites on the coastal environment, and how these risks may change under future climate scenarios.
