Ed Clayton

Senior Scientist | MSc(hons)

Ed has more than a decade of experience working across public and private institutions building and operating hydrological monitoring networks, included calibrating technical equipment and providing quality assurance and data management. His work has covered urban freshwater contaminant generation, transport and fate, compliance assessments and project management. The adaptation of novel technology for monitoring is a key interest, along with the development of new IoT sensor technology.

He is currently working towards his PhD investigating citizen science and community data generation of open-source based time-series catchment hydrological information, the use of such data in validating and enhancing institutional models, and how enabling communities to monitor freshwater systems can enhance connection to environments and sense of place.
