About Matt Perks

Who are you?

I am a Field Technician based in the Department of Geography at Durham University.

What is your role in the project?

My role is to establish field sites and install field equipment within the project sub-catchments and ensure the working order of the in-situ field apparatus by performing routine maintenance and calibration tasks. I am also involved in the manual collection of environmental samples and preliminary data analysis.

What is your background?

I spent the last three years working on my PhD which involved monitoring and modelling the spatial and temporal variability of suspended sediment transfer in upland river systems. During this period I spent a lot of time in the field establishing and maintaining monitoring equipment and collecting surface-water samples.

How do I contact you?
