Emma is an experienced hydrogeologist with expertise in groundwater modelling and low flow investigations. She has undertaken numerous catchment scale low-flow investigations and helped develop novel approaches for integrating flow and ecological data to derive robust flow targets for streams impacted by public water supply abstraction.
In her more than 10 years of professional experience, Emma has undertaken modelling projects in a variety of geological settings. These include involvement with or directly managing the development, update, and recalibration of several regional groundwater models for the Environment Agency—for both chalk and permo-triassic sandstone. She has also used a number of these models for a variety of purposes for water companies.
Emma is experienced in the estimation of recharge using distributed recharge codes, such as 4R, and is familiar with a wide range of groundwater modelling packages.
