Emily is a Research Fellow at the School of Geography, University of Nottingham, and is the lead researcher and project co-ordinator for the multi-disciplinary EPSRC funded research project 'Delivering and Evaluating Multiple Flood Risk Benefits in Blue-Green Cities' and associated “Clean Water for All” initiative (a UK-US collaboration). Emily’s current research focuses on identifying the uncertainties and challenges that act as barriers to the widespread implementation of Blue-Green sustainable flood risk management solutions, and working with stakeholders to find strategies to overcome such barriers. Emily is working closely with local government stakeholders in Newcastle to develop a sustainable vision for urban surface water and flood risk management by maximising the opportunities to achieve multiple benefits of Blue-Green approaches.
