James Brasington
 
James is Director of the River Basin Dynamics research group at the University of Wales Abersytwyth.  He was educated at the Universities of Bristol and Cambridge and was awarded his doctorate for research into hydrological modelling in the Nepal Himalaya in 1998. He has held Lectureships at the Universities of Hull, Bristol and Cambridge, before taking up his Readership in Aberystwyth in January 2007.
 
He is a river basin scientist who works on two complementary research themes: (a) new approaches for characterising and monitoring change in hydrological systems; and (b) numerical methods for simulating hydrological and geomorphological dynamics across a range of time and space scales. Geographically his research spans a diverse range of environments from the hot and dry (Iraq) to the warm and wet (Nepal) and the cool and humid (Scotland and New Zealand).  He also enjoys playing with sand and water in the laboratory which he passes off as physical modelling.
 
When he isn't working, he enjoys mountain walking and running, and occassionally drowning himself in the swimming pool!
