His multi- and inter-disciplinary studies, research and professional practice span over three decades, with work-experiences in the private/commercial, industrial, consultancy, public/government, voluntary and academic sectors. Predominantly, his career is in the risk assessment field, addressing both, natural and anthropogenic hazards. Climate change and sustainability are cross-cutting themes of his career in both, academe and practice; and yet involving all the five spheres of the ‘total’ environment, including: lithosphere (land/soil), hydrosphere (water), atmosphere (air), biosphere (human and other life) and technosphere/anthroposphere (human influences and developments).

Qualifications

His PhD is in environmental risk assessment and computer-aided environmental modelling. He also holds an MSc in Sustainable Waste Management which particularly includes environmental management implications. His first degree, BEng(Hons), is in mechanical engineering. He has obtained memberships with professional bodies (in the UK and abroad) in multi- and inter-disciplinary fields of environment, engineering, water, construction, management, built environment, waste and education. These include: C.Build E, MCIOB, MCIWEM, LCIWM, FCABE, AFHEA, ASET, PE(PEC), GradIEMA, and AMIMechE.

He is a fellow at the Leeds Sustainability Institute and a scientific committee member of SEEDS (Sustainable Ecological Engineering Design for Society).

His research mainly regards design, development and application of holistic frameworks/systems around various facets of the environment, sustainability, and climate change. He has been a peer-reviewer for top quartile journals, research proposals and international conferences. Also, his work is regularly published and presented at international conferences and symposiums. He has years of experience of supervising and guiding both under- and post-graduate/PhD students, and also successfully motivating them to produce publications.
