Dr Richard Randle-Boggis
- Research Associate (Infrastructure & Environment)
I am an environmental scientist with a focus on sustainable development. My interdisciplinary background includes renewable energy, sustainable infrastructure, environmental change impacts, microbial ecology, and industrial environmental management.
Currently I am developing a research proposal to tackle electrification and food security challenges in East Africa. I am also researching the microbial ecology in enhanced, decentralised sanitation systems in SE Asia to determine their performance and reliability, ultimately reducing waste and the spread of diseases.
Previously I created a decision-support tool for renewable energy developers to assess the impacts of solar park management on ecosystem services (e.g. greenhouse gas fluxes, biodiversity and habitat provision). Before that I evaluated DNA sequence analysis methods and researched the impacts of increased flooding events on microbial ecosystems and greenhouse gas emissions.
