Newest King’s Water member speaks during ED PhD Talks

After earing her BSc from the University of Southampton, Eleanore Heasley joined the King’s College London Department of Geography in April 2016 as part of our spring intake of researchers with the London NERC DTP programme.

El is the newest member of King’s Water. Her doctoral research examines the catchment effect in rivers. You can read more about her work on chalk streams on the NERC-DTP blog.

El will speak for the first time at King’s this Thursday 23 June as part of the 1st and 3rd year Environmental Dynamics PhD talks. These talks higlight research happening around the department and give researchers the chance to receive valuable feedback in a collegial space. The talks will include:

  • 1st year student Rory Walshe on “Ground-truthing assumptions of climate change impacts on small island states by cross referencing multiple methods” (10am)
  • 1st year researcher Claudia Gutierrez on “Modelling effects of land use change on faunal ecosystem services provision and demand in the tropics” (10:20am)
  • 1st year student Alejandro Coca Castro on “Modelling pan-tropical land cover and land-use trajectories of deforested areas” (10:40am)
  • 3rd year researcher Tianran Zhang on “New Estimates of Smoke Emissions from Eastern China’s Agricultural Residue Burning” (11:20am)
  • 1st year student Mattia Mancini on “Modelling complexity in coupled human natural systems” (11:40am)
  • King’s Water Member Eleanore Heasley, supervised by James Millington, speaking on “Characterising the catchment effect on physical habitats in UK rivers” (noon)

After El speaks, there will be lunch and drinks. Come hear about the newest in King’s scholarship and meet our newest researcher!
