Professor in Environmental Modelling, Faculty of Science
Neil trained as a physicist (Universities of Exeter and Birmingham) but thanks to an accident of history ended up working in the environmental/agricultural science area at the University of Nottingham (literally an accident of history, namely the Chernobyl nuclear accident which led to funding for environmental radioactivity research). He has been involved in model work related to the fate of trace elements in the environment (especially radionuclides) as well as models of crop growth in response to environmental conditions. In recent years he has been interested in ways to measure how the representation of processes in models influences predictions.
Neil's teaching work ranges from chit-chat on the role of science through to sums:

Neil is currently Head of the School of Biosciences
He is a member of the NERC peer review college and serves on BBSRC research grant panels.
Neil's work is in the development and application of simulation models of environmental and agricultural systems. His work is highly collaborative with a close integration between modelling and experimental/observational work. Neil is also particularly interested in the predictive performance of environmental models, especially in relation to their complexity and the development of methods to create 'parsimonious' models.
Major areas of work include:
