My main research interests are nutrient and carbon cycling, and modelling of catchment and in-lake processes, including climate change impacts. To date I have collaborated on over 25 national and EU funded projects. Through this work I have active and on-going collaborations with groups in Europe and globally. I am coordinator of the MANTEL (www.mantel-itn.org/) MSCA European Joint Doctorate ITN which is training 12 PhDs to investigate the effects of climatic extremes on lakes and reservoirs (2017-2020), and co-lead to the BEYOND 2020 research cluster (contributing to the Burrishoole Ecological Observatory in collaboration with the Marine Institute (2017-2020). Other current work includes research into dissolved organic carbon processing in humic lakes (a Marine Institute Cullen Fellowship), cattle exclusion from watercourses (EPA funded COSAINT project), and application of near-real time modelling to manage lakes and reservoirs as part of the Water JPI PROGNOS project and the Climate JPI funded WateXr project. I am an active member of GLEON (Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network), and currently Director of the Centre for Freshwater and Environmental Studies, at DkIT. I was Chair of the NETLAKE COST Action (2012-2016) which now continues as a European community for those interested in high frequency monitoring in aquatic systems.
