First PhD success

We are proud and delighted to announce our first PhD successes; James Webber and Josh Myrans (Cohort 1) have both successfully defended their theses, subject to minor corrections.

James’ thesis is entitled “Reliable and Resilient Surface Water Management through Rapid Scenario Screening”. James is continuing his association with Exeter’s Centre for Water Systems through two current projects. He is a Research Fellow on a project involving Exeter, Stanford and Melbourne, assessing the potential for large-scale surface water management across the San Francisco Bay. James is also an Impact Fellow for the NERC-funded SWEEP Sustainable Drainage project.

Josh’s thesis is entitled “Automated analysis of sewer CCTV surveys”. He is now employed as a Research Associate on a 2-year KTP project with South West Water with the aim to transfer new technology into the water industry. 

Congratulations both!
