Jimmy received a PhD from Imperial College London where he is now a Research Associate. His main focus has been understanding the challenges faced and opportunities available to water users, particularly in developing regions of the world. Jimmy has extensive field experience, and uses real world insights to develop modelling tools for improving understanding and testing potential solutions. He is currently working on the NERC and Indian Ministry of Earth Sciences funded CHANSE project (Coupled Human and Natural Systems Environment), collaborating with researchers in the UK and India, examining water management under uncertainty in the Indo-Gangetic Plain.
