Malcolm Graham is currently a PhD student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London. His current research involves the development of computer simulations to characterise the saline-freshwater interface in coastal aquifers, using measurements of self-potential.

Malcolm completed his undergraduate degree in geophysics at the University of Edinburgh in 2003, followed by an MSc in hydrogeology at the University of Birmingham, which he completed in 2005. He has been working as a hydrogeologist for the last 9 years, conducting a variety of groundwater investigations in the UK, Australia and Uganda.

His previous work includes the development of numerical groundwater models, assessment of groundwater-surface water interactions using isotopic signatures, design and installation of groundwater monitoring and production bores, development of regional groundwater resource assessments, provision of groundwater management advice to government agencies and the design of groundwater monitoring and remediation systems.
