Jimmy is a NERC funded PhD student from Imperial College London, working with Dr Wouter Buytaert and Dr Ana Mijic. His primary area of research focuses on the development of hydro-economic models to support water resource management within the Ganga Basin. An integrated modelling approach will be used combining groundwater, economic and agricultural models in order to develop a tool which will aid decision making. This will help predict how current or proposed land use practices or policies are likely to affect water availability, and will allow for a more sustainable use of water resources in the future.
Jimmy holds a BSc in Environmental Science and Physical Geography from University College Cork, Ireland, and an MSc in Environmental Hydrogeology from Cardiff University, Wales. He also has five years consultancy experience working on water resource and contaminated land projects in Ireland, the United Kingdom and Poland.
