Dr Edward Curley

  • Lecturer (School of Geographical & Earth Sciences)

Biography

Edward has an undergraduate degree in Zoology, from the University of Liverpool, and a masters in research degree, in Conservation and Resource Management, from University of Liverpool. After his masters, Edward commenced his doctoral work examining interactions between endangered freshwater pearl mussels (Margaritifera margaritifera) and the hydromorphic conditions they experience, with the aim of informing conservation management practises undertaken by industry (SSE) and public (SEPA & NatureScot) partners. Edward completed his NERC iCASE PhD at the University of Glasgow in 2021. Following this, Edward worked as a Research and Teaching Assistant within the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences, University of Glasgow, before commencing a lectureship in Earth and Environmental Sciences in July 2022.

Research interests

My research interests reside within the fields of ecohydrology, behavioral ecology and remote sensing, with studies that have largely centered on the interactions between aquatic organisms and the surrounding hydrodynamic environment.

 

Particular research themes include:

1. Behavioural responses of freshwater mussels to environmental stressors in biomonitoring applications

2. Monitoring the morphology, flow dynamics and ecology of river restoration schemes

3. Phenotypic variation in freshwater molluscs in response to hydromorphic variation in habitat conditions

4. Examining aquatic ecological resiliance to climate change

5. Exploring the use of MEMS IMU sensors in aquatic habitat suitability surveys
