I provide a range of hydrological services to organisations and individuals. These services are principally organised around the topics below, but I'm happy working on most hydrological related problems. I carry out my work both directly for people and organisations who need help and indirectly via other consultancies.

I undertake research and development in a number of areas of hydrology, my principal areas of interest are currently historic flood recreation from literary sources, the use of water quality indicators in assessing flow paths in the uplands and the use of flood seasonality within flood frequency analysis. Please contact me if you have a hydrological problem you need some help with.
