Linking Small-Scale Hydrological Flow Paths, Connectivity and Microbiological Transport to Protect Remote Private Water Supplies

Aaron Neill

I am a Hydro Nation Scholar alumni.  I was a PhD student within the Northern Rivers Institute, School of Geosciences at the University of Aberdeen. My work looked to employ cutting-edge techniques in catchment hydrology, isotope hydrology and microbiology to understand the linkages between hydrological connectivity and the transfer of microbiological pathogens to private water supplies at the plot to hillslope scale, with the aim of developing models to simulate current and scenario-based pathogen transfer risk. Prior to my PhD, I studied at Durham University, where I obtained an MSci in Geography (First Class). The aim of my Master’s project was to investigate the value of stable isotope tracers in improving the predictive capabilities of a fully-distributed, physically-based rainfall-runoff model.
