Welcome to our blog!

Hi there and welcome to our new blog site for the Water Sciences Group at the University of Birmingham. We are a group of researchers who are interested in all things watery from ecology to water chemistry to hydrology and on! We hope that this page will be a place where we can discuss issues and advances in the science, provide some details of the research that we are doing and keep everyone informed of conferences, publications and such like that are coming up. Please feel free to post as much or as little as you want.

new member of the group

Welcome to Quentin Grail, who will be working in the Water Sciences Group for 3 months. Quentin is currently in the 4th year of his 5 year Masters programme in Water and Environmental Engineering at the Ecole Nationale du G√©nie de l’Eau et de l’Environnement de Strasbourg.  Quentin will be working with Dr Stephanie Handley-Sidhu, Dr Joanna Renshaw and Prof Lynne Macaskie, investigating the remediation of nuclear effluent and contaminated groundwaters using a novel biomineral ion exchanger. This work is part of the EPSRC/NERC funded BANDD project (Biogeochemical Applications in Nuclear Decommissioning and Waste Disposal) involving the Universities of Birmingham, Cambridge, Glasgow, Manchester and Strathclyde, and BGS.
